Humor in our life, science, and innovation. These are just a few things Mooney deserves in his lab. He has developed an experimental basis for functional lung generation in mice. He is advancing his technology towards human lung generation and in vivo disease-modeling with his lab mates.

ROSE (ROSE GORDON-SCHNEIDER)

Lab tech

Rose came from New Zealand to join Dr. Mori's lab. Her passion for science and dedication to helping lab mates are essential for the realization of our difficult mission. Professionalism to a tee and her organization into Mori Lab, 

ANRI (Dr. ANRI SAWADA)

​澤田 杏里

MD,  Post-Doc

Anri is the first postdoc in Mori lab and has a mind teeming with innovative ideas and outside-the-box solutions. He is a medical doctor (MD), and his specialty is in nephrology and pathology. He is going to study the regulatory mechanism controlling lung generation in our organ generation system.

Youngmin (Dr. YOUNGMIN HWANG)

PhD,  Post-Doc

Youngmin is the up-and-coming star in the Mori lab. His intense craving guided him to the USA from South Korea for fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. His nanotechnology-based strategy will surrender the life-threatening viral penumonia. 
 

Aki (Dr. AKIHIRO MIURA)

MD PhD,  Post-Doc

Aki is a thoracic surgeon at Okayama Univesity in Japan. He will join in Mori lab from this October. His broad knowledge and extensive experience in lung transplantation will pave the way toward the autologous lung transplantation, which is the critical mission in Mori lab.

THE MORI LAB

What We Do

The main goal of our Laboratory is to understand how efficiently we can generate a whole entire respiratory organ. We use a combination of approaches and technologies that we have developed for use in our studies. Learn more about our research and areas of study below.

WELCOME TO THE MORI LAB

Overview of Our Research

Our research aims to understand the concepts and mechanisms which underly the complexities of lung generation. We use advanced research techniques and technologies to explore the scientific hypotheses that our Laboratory poses. Our research is generously supported by funding from the government and a number of foundations.

We are looking for an outstanding postdoc who has a strong passion for the next generation of regenerative medicine: organ bioengineering. Experience with genome-editing, including gene-targeting, are highly preferred and the enthusiasm to fight against COVID-19 can be highly-competitive as a candidate.
