Mechanism of mouse diapause
Many mammals potentially have the ability to control the timing of childbirth by pausing embryonic development in the preimplantation stage. In addition, it has been pointed out that this may be the cause of early miscarriages in primates such as humans and monkeys, and is one of the phenomena awaiting clarification. In this study, we hope to elucidate part of the molecular mechanism.


Through this research activity, I hope to help basic research take root in society as a culture.
