Fumiaki Uchiumi, Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tokyo University of Science, grew up in Japan and received his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Tokyo University of Science in 1987. In 1993, after obtaining his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Tokyo University, he joined Professor S. Tanuma\'s Laboratory at Tokyo University of Science as an assistant professor. He obtained his second Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Science from Tokyo University of Science in 1999, and in 2000 he was promoted to the position of lecturer at the same university. He then went abroad as a post-doctoral researcher in the United States–Japan Cooperative Cancer Research Program at Professor E. Fanning’s Laboratory, Vanderbilt University, USA 2000–2001. Dr. Uchiumi was promoted to associate professor and then full professor at Tokyo University of Science in 2010 and 2016, respectively.

Gene expression is dependent on multiple steps, including transcription, RNA processing, and translation. Importantly, recent studies revealed that gene expression is regulated by chromatin structures and non-coding RNA profiles. Elucidating the molecular mechanisms may contribute to the development of novel therapeutics for aging-related diseases, including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. This book provides a comprehensive overview of gene expression and its role in human disease. It consists of nine chapters organized into two sections on molecular mechanisms in controlling gene expression and the relationships between transcriptional control and human disease.
