Main theme

[Toyoshima Group]

This group aims to clarify the mechanism of organ remodeling during life stages. In particular, we focus on organ remodelling during pregnancy, obesity, and aging from the perspectives of tissue stem cell dynamics, multicellular / multiorgan network, and mechanobiology. We also aim to apply the mechanism of physiological organ remodeling to regenerative and anti-aging medicine.

[Vandenbon Group]

This group is developing bioinformatics methodology for the analysis of large biological datasets, including single-cell and spatial transcriptomics data.

Research subjects:

  1. Maternal organ remodeling during pregnancy and maternal-fetal interphase
  2. Organ remodeling during obesity and aging
  3. Application of physiological organ remodeling to regenerative medicine
  4. CriMGET system: Gene targeting technology
  5. Bioinformatics methodology for the analysis of large biological datasets
