GSP Enterprise, Inc., is a research institute following in the footsteps of the late Professor Emeritus Nobuyoshi Shimizu,
a leading expert in genome research.
Prof. Shimizu was on the front line of global genome research, called the Human Genome Project, leading both the world and Japan. In 1999 he was able to decipher the whole human chromosome 22. This was one of the greatest achievements on the genome project. In the following year, he succeeded in deciphering the chromosome 21, and the chromosome 8 in 2003. Prof. Shimizu not only furthered genome analysis, but also discovered causative genes such as Parkinson's disease, autoimmune disease, hearing loss, glaucoma, etc. in addition to analyzing their function.
In 2007, Professor Shimizu retired from Keio University School of Medicine. His passion for research towards elucidating the genome super power (GSP) in the genome continued until just before his decease in 2015, at the age of 74.
Our company was established to support his research and researchers assisting his research. We will expand his work into the future.
