Research topics
Conception of intracellular photochemical molecular construction and its application to drug activity control
Suppression of side effects is a critical task in drug therapy. In this research, we will explore the new concept of "photo-triggered in vivo synthesis of drug molecules" toward precise control of the pharmacological activity.


I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the support from Inamori Foundation.
With this research grant, I will try my best to explore new photo-chemical approach to control drug activity with high precision.
