About Us

 To contribute to society through biotechnology, we are developing basic technologies for high production of useful proteins such as biopharmaceuticals in plants, by understanding the mechanism of gene expression regulation of plants.
 We provide guidance so that the students assigned to the laboratory can understand the research logically and broaden and develop the base of knowledge. In addition to regular laboratory meetings, we invite researchers and practitioners from industry to introduce the knowledge necessary for research and development in companies. Through these guidance, we aim to develop human resources who can play an active role in a low-growth, global society.
