    Bioresource Engineering Area

    Professor FUKUSAKI Eiichiro   Associate Professor SHIMMA Shuichi   Assistant Professor SASTIA PRAMA PUTRI
    In a turn of the century, environmental, food and energy problems are becoming more inevitable. Now is the time to develop an environmentally friendly and sustainable socialsystem; biotechnology plays a key role in this challenge. Bioresource Engineering is a technology in search of a “core biological agent”, and to evaluate its practicality. Our laboratory challenges the issues utilizing metabolomics and imaging mass spectrometry as our core competence. Our mission is to raise human resources, who will be the international leaders of the Biotechnology field.

    Molecular Genetics Area

    Associate Professor SUGIYAMA Minetaka   Assistant Professor SASANO Yu
    The major goal of our lab is to understand the genome function of yeasts including Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Because yeasts are not only eukaryotic organisms that share basic cellular processes with us but also important microorganisms for brewing and fermentation, elucidation of the genome functions is very advantageous for promoting both Bioscience and Biotechnology. Our current research focuses on genome wide study of stress resistant genes and its application to fermentation biotechnology and development of novel genome engineering technology and its application to functional genomics.

    Bioenvironmental Science Area

    Professor WATANABE Hajime   Associate Professor MATSUURA Tomoaki   Assistant Professor KATO Yasuhiko
    Many chemicals have been released into the environment in our modern society. However, despite much concern about possible harmful effects of the chemicals, their actual biological effects on humans and wildlife remain unclear. Our laboratory studies the biological responses elicited by environmental chemicals and is also establishing a new system for detecting chemicals using biological materials.

    Dynamic Cell Biology Area

    Associate Professor UCHIYAMA Susumu
    Chromosome is organized by DNA which encodes our genomic information, and it has been more than 100 years since the discovery of chromosome. However, the higher order structure of chromosome has not been elucidated. Our laboratory aim to elucidate the higher order structure using latest protein analysis and imaging techniques. Furthermore, we are also trying to establish a new technical approach by combination of nanotechnology and biology.

    Cell Technology Area

    Professor MURANAKA Toshiya   Associate Professor SEKI Hikaru   Assistant Professor FUKUSHIMA Ery Odette
    Plants produce a huge variety of specialized metabolites with different biological activities. Our primary interest is to understand the regulation and the synthesis of these compounds in plants identifying the genes involved in its biosynthesis and producing them using genetically modified organisms (bacteria, yeast, algae and model plants). More recently, we are promoting the study of valuable crops in a changing environment by combining genomics, metabolomics and genome editing technologies. Our goals and findings may contribute to promote health and increase food production in a climate-changing world.

    Synthetic Bioengineering area

    Associate Professor HONDA Kohsuke   Assistant Professor OKANO Kenji
    Bioproduction is a technology using enzymes and living organisms for the production of foodstuff, pharamaceuticals, and commodity chemicals. Our research has focused on the development of novel bioproduction processes.

    Bioprocess Systems Engineering Area

    Professor KINO-OKA Masahiro   Associate Professor KIM Mie-Hae
    Toward to ”Stem Cell Industries〞. Our missions are (1) to bring a good fortune in human life through the elucidation and utilization of ”bio-potential〞 by
    understanding sequential biological events (BioProcess) in the reaction field (Systems), and (2) to develop human resources of biochemical engineers. Our targets are the analysis, simulation, forecasting and control of various bioprocesses related to mammalian cells, and establishing methodologies for the utilization and application the principles of such processes.
