Associate ProfessorEven within an adult individual, proteins undergo a continuous cycle of synthesis and degradation, maintaining a clean internal environment through constant metabolism.
However, the accumulation of misfolded proteins leads to aging and neurological diseases.
My goal is to elucidate how the cleaning system removes waste proteins and keeps the internal environment clean.
Recent Topics of Interests: Quality control and degradation mechanisms of extracellular misfolded proteins
Motto in Research or in Life: Think first about what to consider
