Synthesis of natural and physiologically-active substances, Organic synthetic chemistry

  1. Synthesis and research of thiostrepton antibiotics Thiostrepton antibiotics are a group of cyclic peptide antibiotics that show reactivity to Gram-positive bacteria and have pyridine-thiazole structure as their basic framework.
  2. Development and research of new reactions using organic sulfur/selenium compounds We are engaged in development and research of new reactions by taking advantage of characteristics of sulfur and selenium atoms represented by reactions of S-adenosylmethionine inside an organism.
  3. Research on synthesis of other physiologically active substances

KIKUCHI Yuji  ProfessorPh.D in Medicine


We are analyzing how living organisms activate their immunological and allergic reactions to bacteria and viruses on the molecular, cellular, and individual animal levels. We aim to apply these findings to the development of therapeutic agents or preventive medicines (vaccines) for infectious diseases and allergies.

Molecular design chemistry

Research is centered around 2 major themes: development of new reactions and synthesis of useful organic compounds. In terms of reaction, new reactions utilizing properties of rare earth elements are actively developed. In addition, we are working on correlation of structural reactivity of natural product synthesis and physiologically active natural products by utilizing such reactions.
