Research Field

Using human ES/iPS cells, our laboratory conducts basic research for neuronal disease modeling and translational research based on transcription and epigenomic states. In particular, through X chromosome inactivation, which is the representative epigenomic event in women, we try to understand the differentiation propensity based on sex and the X-linked disease. We also use genome editing and next generation sequence technologies to accomplish functional and molecular analysis.

Keywords

Human pluripotent stem cell, Epigenetics, Sex difference, Genome editing, Neuronal differentiation
