Our laboratorys research theme is to investigate the transformation of representative biomolecular condensates such as stress granules, nucleolus, and RNA transport granules triggered by stress and aging using cell biology, biophysics, and systems biology approaches.
Specific research topics are as follows:
1. Measuring the physical properties of biomolecular condensates under various physiologic and pathologic contexts
2. Finding genetic/pharmacologic regulators of biomolecular condensates
3. Developing tools to observe biomolecular condensates in higher order systems than cells
