Elucidating the Mechanism of Brain Development

Our goal is to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of brain development that occur under the influence of genetic and environmental factors.

Treatment for Intellectual Disability

We work on the preclinical disease models that exhibit cognitive, motor and other behavior problems, including Autism Spectrum Disorders, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, and epilepsy. Our goal is to identify molecular targets and develop therapeutic approaches.

Engineering Cell and Drug Administration

We engineer iPS cells, and delivery methods of those cells and drugs into the brain for treatment of epilepsy and other brain disorders.

New Research Platforms & Diagnostic Tools

Another line of our studies is to develop platforms for better diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders and for prediction of neurotoxicants by employing computational approaches.
