Naoko Ideguchi

Cofounder of ALS Research Support "Challenge J9" / Professor of Teikyō Heisei University / Doctor of Pharmacy / Doctor of Education
She gives lectures with direct interaction between the students and the patients with an intractable disease, ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), which gradually causes loss of muscles throughout the body. She also conducts fundraising for life support and developing a new treatment for ALS. In 2019, she launched fundraising for Treatment Research Funding "Challenge J9" with volunteers to coincide with the Rugby World Cup in Japan, in cooperation with “J9 Fund” which was established by the legendary South African rugby player who died of ALS, for the purpose to support the patients. She spreads the importance of being interested in the lives and care of those patients with the intractable disease and lasting support while having fun together, through those ALS support activities in which patients and their families can participate proactively. The results are also being used by the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application, Kyoto University and the Patients' Association.
