Research Team for Mechanism of Aging

Team Leader

Masafumi Ito, M.D., Ph.D.

Profile

Our research team consists of three groups, each of which focuses on glycosylation, proteomics and intracellular communication. We aim to elucidate their physiological and pathological roles in humans and to better understand aging and aging-related diseases at the molecular and cellular levels. In addition, we aim to identify novel biomarkers for aging and aging-related diseases. Together, we will contribute to the promotion and maintenance of health in the older people.
