Oral Morphology

Professor: OKAMURA Hirohiko

The Department of oral morphology is a fresh research department that has been newly established since 2017. Our research goal is to clarify the role of post-translational protein modifications in the formation and development of hard tissue and the interaction between oral microorganisms and host cells via extracellular secretory in systemic disease and fetal formation. Many undergraduate and graduate students and international students from overseas are enrolled in the laboratory, and they enjoy studying in an international atmosphere. If you are interested in the beauty and sophistication of the human body and tissues, why not jump into a new world of research with us?
