Since cancer is the leading cause of death in Japan, we need to develop novel strategies to cure it. Tumor consists of not only cancer cells but also the non-cancerous cells including fibroblast, immune cells and cells that comprise the blood and lymphatic vessels. We aim to elucidate the mechanisms how cancer cells become malignant by the various cytokines in cancer microenvironment in order to develop novel therapeutic strategies targeting multiple components of cancer microenvironment.

We sincerely hope for your strong support and cooperation in the future.
