Laboratory of Organic Synthesisand Medicinal Chemistry

Searching for chemical compounds to create new drugs

With the number of people suffering from cancer, osteoporosis and other aging-related diseases rising dramatically in Japan, extending people’s healthy life expectancy and improving their quality of life have become important goals. Our laboratory focuses on brain diseases, which are a major disease category in the 21st century, in the search for synthesized chemical compounds to use in drugs for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
