My laboratory is studying the chemical senses of the brain. The chemical senses have been spotlighted since Drs. Axel and Buck were awarded the Noble Prize in 2004 due to their pioneer works identifying odorant receptors and olfactory processes. Our laboratory is studying the processes of the olfaction using molecular, cellular and morphological approaches. Moreover we are applying our research into the biomedical and bioengineering applications for the medical uses such as stem cell therapy and anti-neurodegenerative drug discovery or improvement of our quality of life such as biosensors.
