RINK is a network established for the purpose of promoting the utilization and industrialization of regenerative medicine and cell therapy. Based in the Tonomachi area of Kawasaki City, this network aims to create innovation through collaboration with various entities such as academia and related organizations.
As a base for the industrialization of regenerative medicine and cell therapy, RINK will advance activities for the purpose of accelerating industrialization through the mutual cooperation and linking of organizations involved with regenerative medicine and cell therapy. The goal is to build a value chain for the series of cellular processing, cultivation, evaluation, storage and transport processes.
