WELCOME

Welcome to the Inagaki laboratory (Laboratory of Epigenetics and Metabolism) at Institute for Molecular and Cellular Regulation (IMCR), Gunma University in Japan.  We seek to understand the molecular mechanisms which will provide novel approaches for the treatment of lifestyle-related diseases such as obesity and diabetes mellitus.  Transcription factors and epigenetic factors are the two main focuses of our study.  These factors regulate gene expression in response to chronic changes of environmental conditions as well as acute stimuli from outside of the body.  We try to elucidate how lifestyle affects future development of metabolic diseases through epigenetic memory of environmental changes.
