Director Amane Sasada, M.D., PhD.


In order to overcome illness, there are three important conditions.

・The most important thing is for the patient to strongly desire to get well.
・Secondly, that there is the warm support of the family.
・Finally, there needs to be adequate support from medical practitioners.

My own mentor first taught me this when I became a doctor. Since that time, I have always aimed to provide care that is respectful, easy-to-understand, and supportive to the patient.

Cancer immune cell therapy is a field undergoing remarkable progress. We continue to make every effort to improve patient care by updating the patient and their families with the latest knowledge and providing the best medical care.
