Center Overview


Cell Logistics Research Center is established to achieve the following aims:
• To elucidate molecular mechanisms underlying cellular logistics pathways that mediate transfer materials    between intracellular organelles.
• To elucidate patho-physiological mechanisms underlying various diseases caused by defects in cellular logistics   and develop novel technologies for treating diseases by regulating cell logistics in patients.

Expected Contribution


• Scientific impacts:
  Studies of cell logistics will provide new and innovative theories in this research field and thus contribute to    establishment of new principles and paradigm shifts in the related biomedical science fields.


• Practical impacts:
  Technologies and methodologies for treating cell logistics-related human diseases developed by the center-driven   researches will be applied to development of diagnostic tools and treatments for the diseases.
