Opto-thermal Neural Interface Technology for Neuromodulation

Abstract Optical stimulation technology has become an attractive neuromodulation technique as it has potential benefit to provide high spatio-temporal resolution in controlling individual neurons. In addition, cell targeting is also possible by optogentics or functionalized nanoparticles. In this presentation, I […]

Microfluidic technology for Biofabrication

Abstract Living materials show superior functions to the artificial ones in terms of the ability to recognize/produce biomolecules. For example, cells (in particular membrane proteins) achieve highly-sensitive and selective detection of several chemicals at the molecular level; they can even […]

New Approaches for Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Abstract 1. Dysfunctional parkin due to mutations or post-translational modifications contributes to dopaminergic neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Overexpression of parkin provides protection against cellular stresses and prevents dopamine cell loss in several PD animal models. 2. IDUNA (RNF146) is […]

Olfactory Receptors and the Regulation of Renal Function

Abstract Olfactory receptors (ORs) are 7-transmembrane G-protein coupled receptors which, when expressed in the olfactory epithelium, play a pivotal role in the sense of smell.  However, recent studies have highlighted important roles played by ORs in a variety of other […]

Overview of Age-related Hearing Loss

Abstract It is generally known that one third of people between the age of 65 and 74 years have some degree of hearing loss, and half of people older than 75 have similar hearing difficulty. Age-related hearing loss, also known […]
