Thank you very much for selecting me for the Inamori Research Grant.
I will make full use of this grant to pioneer a new technology to manipulate cell fate!
In cell division, various proteins work concertedly to generate two identical daughter cells with high precision and accuracy. However, the malfunction of these proteins induces asymmetric cell division to alter dramatically cell fate. In this study, optochemical tools to control the activities of these proteins were successfully developed.
