Koji Kuchiishi's Biography

Koji Kuchiishi, CEO, Cyfuse Biomedical

Mr. Kuchiishi is the co-founder and CEO of Cyfuse, the leading technology provider of Bio 3D Printing technology in Japan. Before Cyfuse, he worked at Panasonic Mobile Communications as a product engineer from 1995 to 2001. He then worked at an IP law firm from 2001 to 2004. He joined McKinsey & Company in 2005, and worked for 4 years in operations reform, strategy building, and post-merger management for healthcare companies and manufacturing companies. After leaving McKinsey in 2009, he co-founded Cyfuse Biomedical in 2010 to commercialize proprietary platform technology of 3D biofabrication, which later led to the successful development of the Bio 3D Printer Regenova®.

Our Bio 3D Printer Regenova┬« assembles cellular aggregates (spheroids) into any desired 3D shape by skewering spheroids on a fine needle array. After removing the needles and maturing in a bioreactor, functional tissues are created.  This platform technology is applicable to various types of cells for both scaffold-free and collagen-based approaches. Examples of printed tissues include blood vessels, liver, and 3D constructs of MSCs for regeneration of osteochondral defects.  Further applications with neural cells and cardiomyocytes are currently being explored by Japanese academia.  The system is commercially available in Japan and will become so in the US in 2015. We are seeking potential users in the US market.
