Terao Chikashi Laboratory is interested in
how we can draw biologically useful information from DNA, RNA and genetic studies
and how we can apply the information to clinical settings
in order to understand the basics of diseases and traits,
to improve management of diseases and to develop novel treatment.
Genetics can find the key molecules for complex traits and lead to new therapies.
Monitoring somatic cell mosaicism would greatly improve population health.
Elucidating the cell type-specific regulatory mechanisms of transcription can reveal unknown basics of diseases.
