Message from the President

President Kentarō Ishigami

The management philosophy of the Soiken Group is to "commercialize the outcomes of medical science research to help people live safe and healthy lives." Accordingly, the Group is actively seeking to utilize university research outcomes in a way that will benefit everyone in their daily lives, so that people can lead safe and healthy lives with fewer medical expenses and an improved quality of life.

In Japan, medical expenses continue to increase against the background of an aging population. This is spurring growth in evidence-based medicine, which helps streamline operation of medical services, and driving vigorous activity in numerous areas of preventive medicine. In response to these social changes, the Soiken Group uses its strength in building and utilizing scientific evidence. In this way, we are using our business to meet people’s needs and fulfill our corporate social responsibility.

The Soiken Group and its group companies are keenly aware of their responsibilities to stakeholders: shareholders, suppliers, customers, healthcare workers, participants in clinical tests and research, our executives and employees, and community members. We strive to manage our business in line with fundamental CSR principles and with a sense of ethics and social decency so that we can be a sustainable, growing corporate group that is trusted by society.
