Division of RNA and Gene Regulation

Welcome to INADA LAB!!



We are looking for technicians and graduate students to research RNA and translation together.
If you are interested in RNA and translation, any background will do.

Inada belongs to the following graduate schools as an instructor.

Department of Biological Sciences, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo 
Department of Computational Biology and Medical Sciences, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo

About us

Translation quality controls eliminate aberrant proteins to maintain protein homeostasis and normal cell function. Improving the accuracy of translation and preventing the production of abnormal proteins is a practical approach for suppressing a series of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. We analyze the molecular mechanism of quality control mechanisms that suppress abnormal proteins and clarify drug discovery’s molecular basis. We propose that the increase in translation accuracy and the enhancement of translation quality control mechanisms are possible strategies to prevent abnormal protein production and prolong healthy life expectancy.
