Our research focuses on:

 The mission of our laboratory is to create and establish useful techniques related to new findings in people with disabilities. To achieve this mission, human-biology-related morphological, molecular, and physiological data are collected and analyzed using newly developed methods. The actual research subjects include undifferentiated stem cells in culture, simulating microgravity for use in regeneration medicine. Bone, muscle, nerve, and blood regeneration are used for induced form mesenchymal stem cells, and hematopoietic stem cells, to better understand diseases and disability in rehabilitation medicine and physical therapy. We also analyze the central nerve system using MEG (Magnetoencephalography) and neural stem cell therapy.

 We will participate in the International Space Station (ISS) program for culture myoblasts and stem cells in space, in 2008, sponsored by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and NASA. We are also collaborating with other researchers: Institute Pasteur (Paris), University of Texas (NASA research group), Chinese Stem Cell Therapy Institutes, and with researchers and clinicians in our university. We welcome you to join our laboratory if you have curiosity about why and how we adapt to the environment, on EARTH, and in SPACE.
