  • Profile

    My research interests are to elucidate the molecular networks, particularly epigenetic and transcriptional regulatory networks connecting metabolism, immunity, and regeneration, and to translate the basic science into diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic means for age-related non communicable diseases. Particularly, my laboratory members conduct research focusing on 1) the regulatory networks of cellular metabolism and function during inflammatory response in macrophages, 2) the transcriptional/epigenetic regulation of skeletal muscle regeneration, and 3) the development of novel therapeutic strategies for metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, sarcopenia, and muscle dystrophy.
