Research for Persons with Disabilities

In the fields of a) physical and intellectual disabilities, b) disabilities of the sensory organs, c) mental disorder, and d) neuromuscular diseases, we will promote research and development in order to provide appropriate support, such as general rehabilitation, and advanced practical research that contributes to the clarification of: etiologies and pathological conditions of diseases leading to disabilities, prevention and diagnosis of such diseases, and treatment and rehabilitation methods for them. We will make special efforts to promote research aimed at providing livelihood support for persons with disabilities and their families and for the families of children with disabilities and at enabling them to participate in society. Moreover, in the fields of c) mental disabilities and d) neuromuscular diseases, we will make efforts to improve the quality of medical treatment (development of guidelines by accumulating evidence through validation of diagnostic and treatment methods) and develop new diagnostic methods and treatment methods (research covering the practical application process from creation of seeds to clinical studies).
