Frontier Research Unit: Oxygen Biology

Welcome to the Oxygen Biology Laboratory!


Study in our laboratory aims to understand how changes in the ambient oxygen concentration affect our body function. Oxygen is required for the efficient energy production in mitochondria. Furthermore, recent studies revealed the role of oxygen, particularly a hypoxic condition, involved in developmental processes, tumorigenesis, and stem cell function. Our goal is to understand the molecular mechanism of hypoxic response, and establish new tools for cancer therapy and regenerative medicine.
