Conducted the world's first "Mission to elucidate a gateway where pathogens and immune cells are likely to enter the central nervous system using inflammatory disease model mice". Accomplished 4 consecutive missions with 100% successful live return.(June 11, 2019)

After completing long-term habitation of JAXA's 4th "Mouse habitat mission" (32 days from May 4 to June 4), which has been performed in the Japanese Experiment Module "Kibo", the mice were accommodated in return cages and returned to the west coast of the United States by the 17th operational vehicle of the Dragon spacecraft (SpX-17).

Hypergravity and microgravity exhibited reversal effects on the bone and muscle mass in mice(May 17, 2019)

Spaceflight is known to induce severe systemic bone loss and muscle atrophy of astronauts due to the circumstances of microgravity. We examined the influence of artificially produced 2G hypergravity on mice for bone and muscle mass with newly developed centrifuge device.
