“We promote advanced medicine and innovative research in health care for infants, children, adolescents, young adults and their families.”

Our mission at the National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD) is to further advance the health and development of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults, as well as the health of mothers, through the delivery of first-rate clinical care, innovative research and education.

We offer the highest-quality medical care supported by new and original research. Our hospital and research institute collaborate together to develop future innovations in medicine and health care, such as establishing induced pluripotent stem (iPS) or embryonic stem (ES) cells for biomedical applications, conducting clinical studies at our hospital, and advancing global research in maternal and child health. In April 2015, we restructured our research institute to further enhance our research activities in maternal and child health. Several new departments were created to further bolster the NCCHD’s research capacity by supporting our hospital and research institute in clinical research and development.

All staff at the NCCHD are united in their aspiration to enhance the quality of life of all patients through our high standard of health care and research. We always take a professional, honest and respectful approach to our patients and their families. In our day-to-day work, we constantly keep in mind the contribution we can make to clinical research and how it shapes medical and health care, the health and quality of life of patients and their families, and society at large.

At the NCCHD we also invest in future health care through educating, training and supporting the next generation of doctors and healthcare workers who will play an important role in medicine, patient care, health, social services, research and education in the years to come.

Thank you for your interest and support in our center. We always welcome opportunities to collaborate with others and hope we can work together towards a shared goal of accessible, high-quality health care for children and their families.



Sincerely yours,

Takashi Igarashi, MD, PhD
