Recent DIA activities have been developing cooperation between government, industry and academia to promote commercialization of innovative medical technologies and products in Japan, the US and Europe, and, with the participation of patients, worked toward dramatic progress in the development of new medical technologies, drugs and medical devices. These movements share the goal of clearly transcending a number of boundaries in order to achieve meaningful new medical innovations.

In Japan, in order to promptly provide world-class medical technology to the public, a new act on Regenerative Medicine, the "Act Concerning Safety Assurance of Regenerative Medicine, etc." and revision of the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act to introduce an Accelerated Drug Approval Program with conditions and time limits according to the characteristics of regenerative and other medicines, were established on November 20.

Coupled with this framework of new regulations, breakthrough discoveries and inventions originating from Japan, such as human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and the medical robot suit, are expected to expand the horizons for health care of the future.

There are a wide variety of boundaries that we must transcend including those between industry, academia, government and patients, between specialized fields within science and technology, between pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, and regenerative medicine, and boundaries that separate countries and regions.

If the development of pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices only follows traditional methodologies and the assumptions of our current development environment, it will become increasingly difficult to bring about revolutionary breakthroughs. It is now essential for open innovation to break down existing barriers. Our conference title this year calls on us to transcend these boundaries and even surpass what we have taken as common sense or expected practice up until now with a strong will to make changes that can create a revolution in medical care.

The theme of the Japan Annual Meeting last year was "Revolutionary Drug Development." This year, we would like to help you work across disciplines and areas of expertise to create medical innovation beyond all boundaries for the realization of a revolution in medical care that truly meets the needs of patients.
