Welcome to Mori lab page !

Thank you very much for visiting the homepage of Mori lab, Department of Pediatric Physiology at NCCHD !

I am Masaki Mori, a pediatrician-scientist, theMasaki Mori principal investigator working at National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD).

The primary aim of the lab is to find a solution for pediatric intractable diseases.

For that purpose, we are currently engaged in molecular biological approach, bioinformatics and disease modeling.

We are welcoming graduate students who are interested in our research.

Contact us anytime [contact information is indicated below].

    We are welcoming new members !

    Positions for Research Fellow are available. Candidates are both grad students and PhD researchers (post-doc).

    Our lab seeks for Ph.D. students and Ph.D. researchers.

    Life science for children

    We aim to identify how juvenile-specific physiological properties are achieved in juvenile.

    Cellular juvenescence is achieved by JAGs, JALNCs and ADAS. Among the JAGs, we recently discovered that Bex1 is essential for cilia formation. Bex1-deficiency provokes ciliopathy phenotypes.
