Currently recruiting motivated graduate students and postdocs who are enthusiastic about studying the biology of stem cells and cancer. We are particularly interested in metabolism and RNA binding proteins in the regulation of self-renewal using mouse models and molecular & cellular biology approaches. Graduate students in our lab will be affiliated with either the Pharmaceutical Sciences or Medical Science Programs at Kyoto University.
