Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Medical Biochemistry!

We undertake research to elucidate the mechanism of the onset of lifestyle and age-related diseases.

In our laboratory, we use a variety of molecular biology and biochemistry techniques to analyze disease model mice and genetically modified mice to elucidate the causes of lifestyle-and age-related diseases such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome. We are developing new treatments. Recently, from the viewpoint of metabolic alteration, we are also conducting research on mechanism of aging.
