Research Achievements

A wealth of achievements in cancer research

We are carrying on cancer research at various levels from genome to mouse models. Recent activities are focused on the Wnt signaling, chromatin regulation, and mouse models of colorectal and biliary tract cancer.


Member Introduction

The members are friendly and kind, and the atmosphere is calm and warm. We have good communication among the teachers and students, and a lot of collaborations with other laboratories. Staff members provide educational and helpful advices and assistance.


Research contents

From the analysis of carcinogenesis to clinical application

We perform not only the elucidation of human carcinogenesis but also the development of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Application of artificial intelligence in the analysis of genome is underway.
