Research theme

We are working on following projects: 1) the analyses of pathological mechanism and therapeutic approaches for amyloidosis, 2) the genetic/pathological analysis of hereditary cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) such as CADASIL, 3) the assessment of the thrombolytic therapy for the hyper acute stage of the Stroke with MRI/CT, ultrasonography, DSA, and SPECT, 4) the analyses of pathophysiological mechanisms and development of the effective therapies for neuromuscular disorders such as ALS and sIBM, and 5) neuroimmunological studies.
