Purpose of Our Research
Cells and tissues are crowding multimolecular biosystems wherein various biological molecules miscellaneously and densely exist in different closed compartments. The purpose of our research area is to establish a new chemical approach for functional analysis and artificial regulation of biological molecules residing in crowded biosystems. By applying leading-edge knowledge and technology from broad research areas, we are creating new chemical methodologies and technologies. These will contribute to further progress in chemical biology, drug discovery, and disease diagnosis and control. Our intensive efforts will overcome difficulties encountered in present methodologies and technologies, leading to a new frontier of biologically relevant chemistry.
