Motoshi Hayano, Ph. D

​(早野 元詞)

I have been leading a research team working on biology of aging at Keio University School of Medicine since 2017. As a JSPS overseas research fellow and Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) long-term fellow, I joined David A. Sinclair's lab at Harvard Medical School in Boston to work on a project using ICE mice in which aging is driven by DNA damage and epigenome (from 2013 to 2017). Currently, I also joined Tsubota Lab Co., Ltd. as CSO. I  helped venture capitals, KII, ANRI, AIFAM and SIP, to find outstanding research.

As a B.S. student, I worked on meiosis using spermatogenesis in newts at Kumamoto University in Shinichi Abe's lab from 2010 to 2011. I have been interested in Werner Syndrome in which 60% of patients in all of the world are Japanese and a single gene named WRN regulates aging initiation as well as aging speed. In order to understand the function of helicase and DNA replication, I moved to Hisao Masai's lab at Tokyo University and addressed the regulation of DNA replication timing through Mrc1 and Rif1 proteins. I got my Ph.D. in 2011 (Tokyo University) and worked as a post-doc in the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science (Masai Lab) until 2013 April.

My team at Keio University is interested in understanding the fundamental process to regulate aging timing and speed in mammals and fish. By using our research, we aim to provide methods to prevent/reverse aging via biotech startups.
