The Department of metabolism, established in 2011, is now focused on the metabolic regulation of lipids and carbohydrates during aging. Based on previous studies, we are examinimg the regulation of lipids and carbohydrate metabolism mediated by ‘wnt’ proteins.

Research Topics:
•Metabolic regulation of cholesterol and lipid metabolism.
•Metabolic regulation of glucose and carbohydrate.
•Functional genomics of diabetes.
•Metabolic regulation of genes.
•Functional analysis of genes.
