Synthesis of natural and physiologically-active substances, Organic synthetic chemistry

  1. Synthesis and research of thiostrepton antibiotics Thiostrepton antibiotics are a group of cyclic peptide antibiotics that show reactivity to Gram-positive bacteria and have pyridine-thiazole structure as their basic framework.
  2. Development and research of new reactions using organic sulfur/selenium compounds We are engaged in development and research of new reactions by taking advantage of characteristics of sulfur and selenium atoms represented by reactions of S-adenosylmethionine inside an organism.
  3. Research on synthesis of other physiologically active substances

KIKUCHI Yuji  ProfessorPh.D in Medicine

Immunology

We are analyzing how living organisms activate their immunological and allergic reactions to bacteria and viruses on the molecular, cellular, and individual animal levels. We aim to apply these findings to the development of therapeutic agents or preventive medicines (vaccines) for infectious diseases and allergies.

NARA Takeshi  ProfessorPh.D in Medicine



HAYASHI Masahiko  Professor

Pharmacology in medical pharmacy

We are searching for new substances with novel anti-cancer effects, anti-inflammatory effects, and antiallergic properties. Using these substances, we analyze their action mechanisms, evaluate their effects through experiments using animals in pathological conditions, and develop lead compounds for drugs and medicines.

Molecular design chemistry

Research is centered around 2 major themes: development of new reactions and synthesis of useful organic compounds. In terms of reaction, new reactions utilizing properties of rare earth elements are actively developed. In addition, we are working on correlation of structural reactivity of natural product synthesis and physiologically active natural products by utilizing such reactions.
