Yanagisawa Laboratory


In our laboratory to understand the molecular basis of biology, we are studying about the molecular mechanism which controls network assembly of transcription and epigenetic. The breakdown of this network induces pathogenesis for disease such as cancer. Our aim is to elucidate this mechanism to control network assembly and to cure the disease by new substance, such as small nucleolar RNA and new compound, which are found to be involved in control of network assembly.

Research Projects

Especially we are focusing on senescence, cancer, and fibrillization and studying to elucidate this mechanism and treatment.
