Research Interest

Developmental Biology, Stem Cell Biology
We analyze the molecular mechanism of embryonic development by using the most advanced methods such as imaging, optogenetics and transgenic mouse technologies. We evaluate mathematical modeling by using transgenic mice and seek to understand the principles of developmental dynamics.

What I like about my science

Live-imaging of gene expression in cells and tissues; regulation of stem cells with blue light technologies

Researcher Q & A

Where are you from?

Yao City, Osaka

Why did you become a researcher?

I wanted to develop new therapies for difficult diseases.

What is your favorite experiment, theory, device, reagent, lab equipment? Why do you like it?

Live-imaging of embryos. It is fun to see embryos dynamically change their shapes.

What is your hobby?

Jogging along the Kamogawa River or around Takaragaike. Very pleasant.

Besides my science I like jogging and cycling.

Light control of gene expression
