Ocular Sciences

Senju Laboratory of Ocular Science aims to identify the molecules responsible for ocular disease, using the most advanced information and technologies. We create original ophthalmic medicines based on nucleic acid and protein structures and functions. To achieve this goal, two research laboratories have been established in Kobe, Japan and in Beaverton, Oregon (USA).

  • Kobe Laboratory

    Kobe Laboratory is located in Business Support Center for Biomedical Research Activities (BMA) in Port Island Phase II, which is the core of Kobe Medical Industry Development Project. This laboratory is situated between Kobe Airport and the central area of Kobe city. It functions as the main section for basic research on the development of ophthalmologic medicines. The Kobe Laboratory is a stimulating environment for research since it is in the midst of Kansai medical industry cluster. It is the international base for research at Senju Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.

  • Oregon Laboratory

    The Oregon laboratory is a satellite lab for performing basic research on the molecular basis of ocular diseases. The lab has been located at the Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU) for more than 10 years, and we still maintain excellent scientific collaborations with OHSU. Aiming at further progress in our research and development, the Oregon laboratory recently relocated to an Oregon signature research center; the Oregon Translational Research and Development Bioscience Incubator (OTRADI). The Oregon laboratory also plays a major role as an overseas base in the U.S. to promote global scientific collaboration.
