Profile

Professor Tetsuya Taga's research at the Department of Stem Cell Regulation has been conducted to elucidate the mechanisms by which stem cells are regulated. The major focus has been on neural stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, and cancer stem cells. The study is aimed to understand development, maintenance, and regeneration of the central nervous system and the hematopoietic system, and to obtain a clue to tackle the problem of cancer recurrence. Particular attention is given to cell-external cues (such as cytokines) and cell-intrinsic programs (including chromatin modification), taking cross-interactions of transcriptional regulatory signals into consideration.
