Mechanical stress governs biological phenomena.
For example, weight training increased muscle mass. Although this may sound obvious, behind this phenomena is hidden molecular mechanisms so complex as to be beautiful. I am fascinated by this beauty and am researching the relationship between the development of living things and mechanical stress.

We are engaged in the analysis of the molecular mechanisms of metabolic conversion during muscle differentiation focusing on transcriptional regulators nuclear translocated dependent on mechanical stress.
Avoiding focusing only on the field of biology, we are also involved in collaborative researcher with researchers in the School of Engineering.
You are interested in metabolism!
You want to do something about metabolic syndrome!
You want to understand cardiogenesis!
What is mechanical stress?
If these statements fit you, than I am looking forward to the day when we can researcher together in Sendai, the city of trees.
