Morioka lab focuses on delineating the molecular mechanisms that regulate programmed cell death such as necroptosis, pyroptosis and apoptosis (Blood 2012, and Cell Death Differ 2017).  In addition, Morioka further delineate  how dead cells are removed and how efferocytosis impacts on homeostasis and pathology using a uniquely created model systems (Nature 2018, Nat.,Cell. Biol. 2019 and Cell 2022 ).
