〈Research Outline〉
Stem cells play crucial roles in maintaining tissue homeostasis by continuously replenishing cells required for sustaining proper tissue functions. Elucidation of molecular mechanisms underlying stem cell regulation is of great importance both for developmental biology and for clinical applications in regenerative medicine and cancer therapy. It is a widely appreciated that stem cells are regulated by their surrounding microenvironment, termed "stem cell niches". However, because of difficulties of identifying and manipulating stem cells and their surrounding components, the exact underlying mechanisms remain largely elusive. The ultimate research goal of my lab is to clarify molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying stem cell regulation and translate them into realization of novel stem cell-based therapeutics.To this end, as model systems to study stem cell biology, my laboratory have been focusing on stem cells in the hair follicle. By integrating comprehensive gene profiling analysis of the stem cells and reverse-mutagenesis approaches in mice, we aim to uncover key molecular mechanisms that underpin stem cell regulation by the niche.

 

  • (Master's Course)
    The goals of this course include: i) to understand up-to-date knowledge of stem cell biology, ii) to develop practical skills to conduct biomedical laboratory research work, iii) to learn skills to present and discuss the underlying ideas and theoretical background of own work. At the end of this course, the students are expected to acquire basic skills and knowledge required for conducting biomedical studies in the field of molecular biology.
  • (Doctor's Course)
    The aim of the Ph.D. degree program to provide highly qualified research specialists to academic and industrial research institutions. In this course, the students are expected to acquire cutting-edge research skills to pursue a vast array of biomedical studies in the filed of molecular cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, and bioinformatics. The main goal of the doctor's course is to develop skills regarding to conduct a complete research as an independent scientist. These skills include the literature survey, project organization, experimental design, problem solving, public presentation as well as publication.
【Intelligent Image Information】
Professor : FUJITA,Hiroshi
Principal research interests :
  • (Master's Course)
    As a research subject of regeneration technology, image processing used to analyze the shape and function of generating process from a somatic cell to the human tissue and organs with the complex three-dimensional (3D) structures is very important. The advanced technologies such as image engineering, image-processing engineering, visualization technology, stereo imaging technology, knowledge engineering (artificial intelligence), computer science, computer graphics, and virtual reality (VR) are used here. Our education and research fields are widely covering from basic medical information processing to advanced computer applications based on 3D image processing.
  • (Doctor's Course)
    Our research and education focus on the medical image processing using computers in medical fields such as regeneration technology. For example, the development of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system is a part of our research. CAD system is designed to indicate the lesion's position in medical images and provide some further information to help the doctor to make the medical diagnosis correctly and quickly. Our researches are based on advanced technologies that include image information processing technology, virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence, and apply to image processing in the different fields of medical engineering.
