Kiji – iPSC/MSC engineered cell therapy for inflammatory disease

why kiji ?

Our name, « Kiji, » meaning « pheasant » in Japanese, is inspired by the Pheasant Island, which alternates sovereignty between Spain and France every six months. Additionally, according to a Japanese legend, a pheasant named Hō-ō was living in the forest when a fire broke out, threatening to destroy the trees and animals. Hō-ō sacrifices itself by flying into the fire to re-born as a majestic phoenix, bringing healing and renewal to the burned forest and its inhabitants. Like Hō-ō, Kiji is committed to the new era, offering hope and renewal to patients with inflammatory conditions.
