Research Keywords biopharmaceutics / pharmacokinetics / membrane transport / transporter / endocytosis / organ/cell toxicity of drugs
Comments Pharmaceutics is a discipline unique to pharmaceutical sciences, including formulation design, mechanisms governing the fate of administered drugs in the body (ADME), control of drug concentration in the body by pharmacokinetic analysis (administration design), and the relationship between tissue distribution of the drug and drug efficacy/toxicity (side effects). Pharmaceutics plays an important role in a wide range of fields, from drug discovery to the proper use of medicines in clinical practice. In our laboratory, we are conducting a series of basic research on drug transporters, which are the controlling factors of pharmacokinetics, from gene level and protein level analysis to systemic pharmacokinetic analysis. We are also interested in research on the molecular mechanism of tissue and cellular toxicity caused by drugs and how to control it. In the future, we would like to feed back the findings obtained from these studies to drug discovery and clinical practice.
