Research Outline

We are studying regulatory mechanism of photosynthesis, chloroplast, and photoreceptor functions.

Life on Earth mostly relies on energy from the sun that is converted to biochemical energy by photosynthesis. The coordinated control of photosynthesis is thus critically important for all living organisms. Our research goal is to understand how photosynthesis is regulated and optimized, and how it helps to solve current problems for energy and food needs in the world.

People in the lab has own theme to perform original cutting-edge research. We welcome students and post-docs who are interested in not only photosynthesis but also a wide range of research fields including plant biology, microbiology, photobiology, biochemistry, genetics and biophysics. Please feel free to contact to myself.
