Main theme

We are interested in identifying and elucidating molecular mechanisms that regulate cell proliferation, cell differentiation and developmental processes. The current topics include 1) regulatory mechanisms and functions of the MAP kinase cascade pathways, 2) identification of novel signal transduction mechanisms, 3) roles of protein kinases in cell regulation, 4) signaling mechanisms in developmental processes.
