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.

This lab is for this SDG activity:

  • すべての人に健康と福祉を

STUDY FIELDS

  • Pharmaceutics
  • Chemistry
  • Life science

FOR SOCIETY

One of our goals is being able to regenerate cranial nerves. This could lead to an effective treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, which has so far eluded the medical profession.

RESEARCH THEMES

  • Creating low-molecular compounds to induce differentiation of neural stem cells into neurons
  • Creating new chemical compounds that act on nuclear receptors
  • Synthesizing collagen-like compounds from β‐amino acids
