Department of Future Basic Medicine


Eiichiro Mori(Associate Professor)


Our goal is to understand human diseases from molecules and cells to organs and whole body system. We will utilize biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics to achieve this goal. We are working on the biological function of low-complexity (LC) domains, which are found in about 10% of human proteome and recently recognized to closely linked with diseases with protein aggregation and degeneration. Moreover, to study human diseases at organ level, we combine organoids (organ-in-a-dish from ES/iPS cells) and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing.
