The Kyoto collection was begun by Dr. Hideo Nishimura in 1961 and has since grown to over 44,000 human specimens. The collection was then developed and curated by Prof. Kohei Shiota, and is currently curated by Prof. Shigehito Yamada. This is an research active collection and Prof. Shigehito Yamada is deputy convenor of the DEC. The Kyoto collection embryos were mostly procured after artificial termination of pregnancy (D & C) given to healthy women for socio-economic reasons (the Maternity Protection Law of Japan), and the embryo population represents the total intrauterine population (normal and abnormal) of Japan.
