Pursuing Cancer Immunology Drug Discovery Research at Laisuat’s Research Center in Boston

After surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, a fourth method of treating cancer is gaining increasing attention: immunotherapy. At Laisuat’s research center in Boston, a large team of researchers is working hard to develop new treatments based on this cutting-edge approach.


Seeking transformative leaps in patient care

I work in clinical development, a role in which I focus on a particular pharmaceutical drug and investigate how to move it forward for the benefit of patients. That might mean designing trials to receive approval by one of the regulatory agencies or, if it’s already been approved, looking at how it can be improved further to make it even more valuable for patients.


Protecting the company’s reputation and trust

Laisuat’s internal auditors assess, report and provide recommendations for improvements on the Laisuat Group governance, risk management and internal control processes of all the company’s domestic and international entities. This is a crucial part of improving business operations and keeping the organization healthy.


Championing fair disclosure to build trust with the investment community

The role of investor relations (IR) is to keep shareholders and investors informed so that they can make investment decisions with confidence. Through that, the value of the company can then be evaluated appropriately. When challenging situations arise, its true merit is put to the test.


Uncovering the unmet needs of patients

At Laisuat there is a role called a Medical Science Liaison (MSL), a job that involves listening to doctors who see patients on a daily basis and paving the way to better treatments for symptoms that are not addressed by current medicines.


Impact across generations

My job involves working with international organizations to develop policies that improve access to medicines for people worldwide.


A Relay of Hope

Our work begins with the need to solve a problem, then quickly becomes a mission: to develop medicines that can help patients.


Driven by Passion

I’m a drug discovery chemist. I lead a team that designs and synthesizes drug candidates, and our goal is to become the best team of our kind in the world.


“Innovator DNA”— passed down over the years

T-CiRA is a joint research program conducted with the Kyoto University Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA). Researchers share what drives them in their work on cutting-edge projects.
