"Aging" is the most universal phenomenon in life, yet it is also the most diverse and complex. The acquisition of life span is a very important issue in understanding the evolution of life, and the elucidation of the characteristics and molecular mechanisms of aging is an important issue that will revolutionize our future social infrastructure. We are interested in the aging rate, timing, physical properties, and sensory organs among other aging characteristics.

Currently we are focusing our research on aging-dependent organ dysfunction in the kidneys, joints and bones, in addition to diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, depression and sarcopenia. Our goal is to understand the question of what is lifespan in organisms and how aging is controlled. We aim to develop biotech methods including a small compound and gene therapeutics to rejuvenate aging. 

研究室(早野元詞/Motoshi Hayano)では、生命に共通した老化をヒト、実験動物(マウスやサカナ)などを用いた本質の理解、特に老化の開始タイミングと速度に興味をもち研究を行っています。現在は、我々はアルツハイマー病、パーキンソン病、うつ病、サルコペニアなどの疾患に加えて、腎臓、関節、骨などの老化依存的臓器機能低下の研究に注力しています。エピゲノムや遺伝子解析、遺伝子編集、合成生物学から、物理、AI、deep learningなど幅広く活用して、創薬、医療機器開発を目指します。
