Object of Our Research

We are investigating to clarify the mechanism of development and regeneration of livers, especially the nature of hepatic stem/progenitor cells and to reconstruct hepatic tissues in vitro.

Current Researches

Liver development
Stem/progenitor cells involved in normal and pathophysiological conditions of livers
Cell transplantation for the treatment of liver diseases
Expansion of hepatocytes in vitro
