Suffering from age-related disorders spoils our quality of life, even if we can fortunately obtain longevity in our life. Dementia is not the sole cause which impairs our activity of daily living, and other age-related illness including lifestyle-related, vascular, neuromuscular and bone diseases, is increasing with acceleration of global population aging. Our research team aims to investigate the molecular mechanism of the age-related disorders, develop better treatment and create preventive means to achieve our successful aging.
