Outline

More than a thousand different phospholipid species are present in tissues and cells. In addition to their role as a building block of biological membrane, phospholipids are now recognized as important players in the regulation and control of cellular physiologies and diseases. In this study, we will focus on metabolic syndrome and cancer, and develop the innovative technologies that accelerate the researches for disease-associated membrane phospholipid metabolites and their target proteins. We will also aim to provide biomarkers and therapeutic targets for these diseases.
