Research Activities

My lab mainly studies molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell biology. This field understands biology at a molecular or chemical level. Nitrogen monoxide becomes a very unstable toxic substance by reacting with active oxygen. This substance is a by-product of redox reaction, but such substances perform useful functions within an organism. To uncover these facts and more, we are mainly studying the biology of redox substances . We create new biological concepts and hope they will lead to useful applications soon.
