Laboratory of Multidisciplinary Biology

Research summary

Research outline

Biological functions such as cellular differentiation are often regulated by vast numbers of molecules. Elucidating the general principles behind the organization of these complex molecular environments is a critical challenge.

Our laboratory addresses this challenge by developing new technologies for the large-scale characterization and manipulation of intracellular molecular activities. By integrating knowledge from multiple academic fields, including biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, and informatics, we aim to understand, predict, and control intracellular molecular interactions.

For details, please see the laboratory homepage as shown above.
