In medical and life science researches, to analyze the biological roles
of genes, it is necessary to perform experiments using living animals.
In 2017, Hiroaki Honda was assigned to this facility as a first full professor.
Since 2018, this Institute has been working on student education and basic
research with an associate professor, an assistant professor and other
In 2017, equipments necessary for developmental engineering, such as a macro-manipulator, an inverted microscope and microfuge were settled in a sophisticated room in the Institute, and in 2018, the first knock-out mouse was generated. After that, on requests from various Universities and Institutes, a number of genetically engineered mice, such as knock-out, knock-in and conditional knock-out mice, were created using the gene editing techniques.
We further analyze biological functions of target genes by generating genetically engineered mice. In addition, we elucidate pathophysiological mechanism of diseases by creating human disease models and develop novel molecular targeted therapies.
