Molecular Medicine & Human Diseases

In the Department of New Biology, integrated applications of a broad spectrum of technologies ranging from molecular genetics to imaging, systems biology, biochemical methods, and single molecule physics play an important role in studying complex human diseases and molecular or network medicine for such diseases. The disease areas which are actively studied include cancer, metabolic disorders (diabetes), atherosclerosis and heart disease, neuronal diseases (Alzheimer’s disease, autism, depression, and strokes), autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes), as well as diseases affecting many other specific organ systems.
