In the anime
After his daughter Amber died, Dr. Fuji devoted his life to trying to bring her back through the usage of cloning. His wife was distraught and could not continue watching his endeavors, insisting that he could not bring Amber back to life. She left him, yet Fuji still worked.
After the original Charmandertwo, Bulbasaurtwo, and Squirtletwo died during the experiment, Ambertwo—the cloned form of Amber—died as well, eliciting a heightened emotional response from Mewtwo. Dr. Fuji panicked and administered a form of emotion-suppressing serum to Mewtwo, which may have caused its seemingly-twisted personality. Time passed and Mewtwo matured, though shortly after gaining consciousness, it destroyed the lab on New Island, presumably killing everyone—including Fuji. A record of Fuji's final words survived the explosion, which Mewtwo ended up keeping, and was later discovered by Jessie, James, and Meowth, who sneaked into New Island.
Dr. Fuji reappeared in Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, a remake of Mewtwo Strikes Back, where he played the same role.

Dr. Fuji is likely based on the game character Mr. Fuji, who was formerly known as Dr. Fuji when he founded the Cinnabar Lab.
In the manga
Dr. Fuji appeared in the manga adaptation of Mewtwo Strikes Back!. He serves the same purpose as his movie counterpart in being the scientist that created Mewtwo, although his motivations and his relationship with his creation differ vastly.
