My main research interests are i) derivation of functional dopamine neurons from various cell sources including human ES cells, based on the strategy of cell replacement therapy to parkinson’s disease, and ii) specific gene functions in related brain development. Recently, I focus on establishing disease model system using PD-patience specific human iPSCs.
