Organ Regeneration

The team is working to establish a new approach for self-organization-based induction of primordial organs and organoids, referred to as ‘direct reprogramming organogenesis.’ In addition, they are also striving to understand the mechanisms underlying organogenesis, particularly the molecular mechanisms inducing periodic morphological changes of hair follicles. They aim to cultivate primordial organs and organoids, which are still mini-organs, into systems that can be used for transplantation, as well as analyze design and disposition of cells and blood vessels in each organ to engineer 3D organ systems.
