Welcome to Yonekura Lab. HP !
The major research interest of our group is physiological responses against environmental stresses. We are exploring the hidden mechanism of stress response at cellular and molecular levels. We are particularly interested in the relationship between the stress response and a functional disorder in neuronal cell or peripheral cells such as adipocyte.
Graduate students wanted

We are always seeking motivated and ambitious new colleagues to join our lab. All students will learn the basic standard techniques, and obtain a theoretical framework to understand the ongoing research in the laboratory.
