2020Inamori Research GrantsBiology & Life sciences
Autophagy research in Japan is leading the world, mainly in cell biology research, as recognized by Dr. Yoshinori Osumi's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2016. However, research on its physiological and pathological significance lags behind that of other countries. In this grant, I will elucidate the cancer control mechanism of autophagy in the very early stages of carcinogenesis and work hard to develop innovative cancer therapies that utilize autophagy.
