Our institute seeks to illuminate precisely such a chemical basis of cells, creating compounds to control processes in cells such as stem cells (materials for cell control), and further down the road spark cellular processes to create chemical materials (cell-inspired materials).

DNA contains genetic information necessary for constructing RNA, and the RNA acts as a messenger of the information to make functional proteins in cells. Dr. Yousuke Katsuda and his team found a unique compound named RGB-1 that has high-selectivity for RNA G-quadruplex. His group also reported a new methodology to identify RNA G-quadruplexes in cells.
