Approximately 37 trillion cells in our body constantly receive cues from extracellular environments and respond by changing cytoskeletal organization and cellular functions as well as initiating transcriptional program, thereby maintaining homeostasis. To understand the interactions between cells and extracellular microenvironments is a key to unravel survival strategies of living organisms.

Our laboratory aims to molecularly dissect cellular responses to alterations of extracellular environments and to find a potential link to dysfunction of tissues, focusing on blood vessel cells (endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, and fibroblasts) and tissue stem cells. In addition, we are expanding our long-standing interest in extra cellar matrix (ECM) research and collaborating with researchers in the next generation imaging, bioengineering, and glycotechnology to develop new diagnostic and/or therapeutic tools.

Yoshito received a Young Faculty Member Encouragement Award

January 9th, 2020|

Yoshito received a Young Faculty Member Encouragement Award from Univercity of Tsukuba. That because his paper was published in an academic journal which is famous for being highly valued and rigorously peer-reviewed. Including awards for outstanding academic research, In 2018, he undertook a remarkable research activity. Congratulations!
Some of photos from the event have posted on the photo page.

 

We are recruiting undergraduates seeking for a senior thesis project and graduate students (including rotation students). Our lab is open for a lab visit.
