The Creation of Basic Medical Technologies to Clarify and Control the Mechanisms Underlying Chronic Inflammation

Masayuki Miyasaka (Professor, Osaka University)
Year Started


The purpose of this research is to elucidate the mechanisms through which inflammation becomes chronic, and the creation of basic technologies for the early detection, control, resolution, and reparation of chronic inflammation.
More specifically, this involves research aimed at
1) identifying factors that induce and maintain the chronicity of inflammation by determining failure mechanisms of inflammation control;
2) clarifying the mechanisms through which specific diseases (including cancer, degenerative neurological disorders, and arteriosclerotic diseases) develop as a result of chronic inflammation, and to create basic technologies to control them; and
3) creating basic technologies that allow the early detection and quantitative assessment of chronic inflammation. This not only involves established basic or clinical research, but also emphasizes on research that sufficiently sublimes evidence-based findings for understanding high-dimensional inflammation control mechanisms, and leads to the development of new preemptive basic medical technologies.

Strategic Sector
