Genesis Healthcare Co., a private-owned genetic testing service company located in Japan and Asia, (President: Dr. Iri Sato Baran) has recently signed an official sponsorship agreement with Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles for the 2018 Season.
Genesis Healthcare, possessing the largest genetic database in Japan and Asia of over 550,000 people, has envisioned to find medical and healthcare solutions through genetic research and development. Through our sponsorship and various genetic research surrounding the sports area, we hope to explore how sports can be validated and incorporated into the advancement of genetic science.
Our association with the Northern Territory, especially Miyagi-prefecture which is the hometown for Rakuten Eagles, started In 2011 and holds deep roots to our decision. We were the first responders to assist the Japanese Govt after the Great East Japan Earthquake. While it was entirely volunteering, we received a letter of appreciation from the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry for our assistance during Tohoku’s difficult period.
