Human Pathology & Pathological Neuroscience

About us

In TWMU, Department of Pathology belongs to Faculty of Medicine, whereas “Human Pathology & Pathological Neuroscience” is a field of Graduate School of Medicine. The staff members in the former overlap those in the latter. In the Faculty of Medicine, we take part of medical student education from the view point of active learning of morphological alterations reflecting pathophysiological mechanisms of several organ diseases. In Graduate School of Medicine, we work on pathological studies to determine molecular processes of a subset of diseases and search molecular targets specific for certain disorders, by epigenomic, genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic analyses, using human tissues, disease model animals, and disease model cell cultures. Characteristically, our research is every time based on human diseases unlike other departments. The major topics of research in our colleagues are malignant glioma, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy, autoimmune nervous system disorder, cerebral ischemia, atherosclerosis, carcinoma metastasis, and thyroid carcinoma. Some of them are our original studies, and others are collaborative studies together with other departments or institutes.
