|Field||Molecular cell biology, Cell Signaling, Pathogenic microbiology, Zoonosis, Foodborne pathogens, Food Hygiene, Veterinary public health|
|Keyword||Small GTPase, Membrane trafficking and Endocytosis, Pathogens and bacterial toxins, Cell invasion, Cell adhesion and barrier, Transcription factor, Bioterrorism, Cultured cells, Pathogenesis, Detection|
Working on cellular and molecular mechanisms on pathogenesis of "human infectious diseases" important in veterinary fields and public health fields such as zoonoses and food-borne infectious diseases. Especially focusing on the entry of infectious agents and/or virulent factors to the target host cells.
List of current research topics
- Molecular mechanisms on cellular entry of infectious agents and bacterial toxins related to zoonoses and foodborne diseases.
- Development of a rapid and convenient detection method for human pathogens.
- Survey of infectious agents in wildlife.
- Food hygiene and Food safety.
|Academic degree||Ph.D. (Doctor of Medical Science)|
I was going to be a veterinarian for industrial animals, but I found myself enjoying on the path of basic medical research. Life phenomena and the molecular mechanisms of the onset of disease, are still very poorly understood. I would like to pursue research work on life science with fun.
