By analyzing data obtained from a large number of anatomical samples, we are studying some means to clarify the cause of death, along with a simple and convenient method to estimate the age and time elapsed since death. We are also investigating the effect of ethanol on vascular response and its role in the mechanism of alcohol-induced sudden death by using rat isolated superior mesenteric artery. Furthermore, we are studying methods of treating sepsis by using the iPS cell and aim to establish a forensic diagnosis of sepsis through the elucidation of the pathological mechanism of sepsis.
