Aiming for analyses of various diseases and development of new therapies. ■In basic science, we attempt to clarify the molecular mechanisms of life-related phenomena.  ■In clinical science, we attempt to clarify the pathogenesis of diseases including leukemias, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), cancers, and autoimmune diseases, and to develop new therapies for them.

Research Projects

  Immune cells consists from various types of cells arise from hematopoietic stem cells. Failure in immune system leads to various types of diseases such as cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, and so on. In order to investigate whether our immune system works well or not, it is important to elucidate the mechanisms and function of immune cell individuals, interaction between immune cells, recognition and immune response by the introduction of viruses or microbiome. These basic researches will pave the way for drug discovery and approach to therapy.

  Newly developed innovative technologies such as multicolor flow cytometry and single cell analysis contribute to the interactive and comprehensive understanding of complex immune systems. It is also necessary to overcome the existing fractionalized scientific fields for understanding immune system deeply and take on the big challenges for scientific innovation.

  Our lab is trying to nurture young scientists who will lead the original integrative research into the next generation.
