【Recent highlights】
We have developed a novel separation method to be used preferentially as an alternative to existing tools for reliable enrichment of thiol-containing molecules in the study of thiol biology.

Profiles of Faculty and Research Scholars

We provide three lectures in basic physical chemistry for undergraduate students.
We are in charge of scientific training for graduate students who are interested in the focused proteomics.

· Development of an original phosphoproteome technology
· Research on functional molecules for drug development
· Development of efficient genotyping method using a zinc(II) compound
· Application of thiol-selective binding molecules
