The aim of this research group is to elucidate pathogenic and pathogenesis mechanisms activated by failure in systems that control the principles of life. To do this, it aims to provide an understanding of life by outlining its principles at the molecular level based on biochemical considerations, and then through the reconstruction of life at the cellular and individual levels. Biological system failure is caused not only by genetic anomalies but also by abnormal epigenetic control. The group seeks to foster competent individuals by encouraging analysis (based on a cross-sectional approach involving both chemistry and medicine) of associations between diseases and functional or structural abnormalities in the molecules that make up biological systems. Particular focus is directed toward educational and research programs designed to help students interested in life medicine to draw on their existing basic chemistry techniques and to groom them for application to new fields of study.
