Hello everyone, 

These are difficult times indeed.  There is much suffering going on in the world secondary to the Covid 19 virus, with illness and pre-mature death.  In addition, many people have lost their livelihoods and are being forced to isolate themselves.

Out of necessity, we find ourselves turning to science for a long term solution. Hopefully, there will be a cure or a vaccine for the virus.  There are many promising candidates, but at times the solution seems far away.

Our research lab, the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation, will hopefully be able to contribute toward a cure or a vaccine.  We also strive to solve other medical diseases and conditions, which have unfortunately largely been put on hold by this virus.
