Establishing a novel and innovation treatment for allergic and inflammatory disease in mucosa
It is most recently reported that telocytes (a kind of mesenchymal cell) are major sources of Wnt. With important insights like this only just beginning to come to light, it appears that there is much more that the Kurashima Laboratory can learn about the complexity of mesenchymal cell populations. Indeed, the significance of the group's research has even been recognised by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), who selected the Kurashima Laboratory as one of its "Leading Initiative for Excellent Young Researchers".
