Our objective is to clarify the molecular basis of congenital endocrine-related disorders and apply our findings to new innovations in clinical medicine. We investigate the molecular basis of single gene disorders, epigenetic/imprinting disorders, and multifactorial disorders.

<Target diseases>

Single gene disorders
We aim to identify novel genes that play a role in the development of congenital malformation syndromes and endocrine-related disorders. We are also involved in developing new diagnostic tools, assessing current therapies, and establishing new therapeutic methods.

Epigenetic/imprinting disorders
We investigate the underlying mechanisms and phenotypic determinants of imprinting disorders and analyze the possible association between methylation defects and environmental factors.

Multifactorial disorders
We aim to identify genetic polymorphisms involved in the susceptibility of diseases and responses to environmental factors.
