Dept. of Biological Response and Regulation

Department of “Biological Response and Regulation” is a donated fund laboratory/department, and was offered on Sept. 2016. The laboratory is aimed primarily to study various biological stresses of cells/tissues/organs/bodies and their responses against the stresses, and also to regulate the biological stresses actively.
We would like to picture/propose an epochal life style to live strong and supple lives in a modern society, and to create a new concept of health sciences for a future life. We have already started to develop new bio-imaging technologies in Laboratory of Molecular and Functional Bio-Imaging (LMFBI) in Health Innovation Center. In this endowed department, we will systemically push a study ahead from a clinical point of view.
