Research Grants & Projects

Exploitation of fluorescence SEM and an application of an organic EL fluorescent dye to its biological sample
Project Year: 2005 - 2009
A scanning electron microscope is attempted to combine with fluorescence microscope. In parallel with its set-up an organic EL dye, Fluolid, is applied to the labeling of biological samples using the new instrument.
Mechanism of axonal regeneration of peripheral nerves
Project Year: 1998 - 2005
The cells and molecules involved in axonal regeneration of peripheral nerve are studied using immunohistochemical methods.
Role of glia on adult neurogenesis of olfactory neurons
Project Year: 2006 - 2009
The olfactory receptor neurons in the olfactory epithelium undergo neurogenesis under physiological conditions and in response to lesions. The involvement of the glia in neurogenesis is examined.
