Our Mission

We contribute to promoting human health by expanding frontiers, accelerating research, and reducing risks of drug discovery.

Who We Are

Tanso Biosciences has spun off from The University of Tokyo since 2018 and occupies university incubator spaces at the main campus in the central district of Tokyo.

It is also a member of Illinois Startups, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. One of its co-founders, Hideaki Ogasawara, MD, PhD, MBA serves as Chief Executive Officer.

The Name

We coined the name Tanso by combining the kanji characters (tan, exploration) and (soh, creation) to indicate our aspirations of innovating a drug discovery platform and developing new drugs on it.
