Research Overview

We are engaged in neurological disease research by converging reprogramming technology and data science.

It is our dream to find a cure for irremediable neurological diseases with the power of science. We are innovating reprogramming-based research by its merger with the power of artificial intelligence and thereby challenging to reveal the mysterious reasons why neurodegeneration occurs, and to explore the question of what a human being is.

We are working on the following projects:

(1) Research on the pathogenesis and treatment of neurological diseases including ALS and Alzheimer's disease

(2) Neurodegeneration Research using machine learning

(3) Research on brain intelligence using primate stem cells



We start with the thought "I wish I could do this, know this, and try this." A "dream-driven approach" is the style of our laboratory.
