The aims of the ongoing research projects in our laboratory are to elucidate the regulatory mechanisms of intracellular signal transduction systems responsible for cell-fate decisions, such as MAP kinase cascades and Stress granules. Perturbation of these signaling systems is involved in a variety of life-threatening diseases, including cancer, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative disorders and type 2 diabetes. Our laboratory also aims to develop new diagnostic or therapeutic tools for currently intractable disorders in which these pathways are involved.
