In obstetrics, we are conducting basic and clinical research on the relationship between inflammation and obstetric complications such as pregnancy-induced hypertension, backed by an abundant number of cases.

In the field of gynecology, we are investigating the pathogenesis of endometriosis and ovarian cancer arising from endometriosis, and searching for therapeutic targets. In particular, we are studying the efficient induction of cell death in ovarian cancer by synthetic lethal induction as well as the significance of Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor 2 (TFPI2) as a tumor marker for ovarian cancer and its biological significance as a substance.

In reproductive medicine, we are investigating fertility preservation for cancer patients and the establishment of a network system for the treatment.
