Message for researchers

Your willingness to try new and challenging things is the most important mindset when conducting any original research. While I hope you will enjoy working on your exciting research project, I also suggest you cultivate and improve skills to show how unique and interesting your research is to people outside of your field. I will put my efforts into making your research more creative and productive.

Specialized field/skill

Drug Discovery Chemistry, Biomolecule, Bio functional Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Pharmacology

What made you decide to become a URA?

I had been involved in much drug discovery research and development projects at the pharmaceutical company for about thirty many years. By utilizing my abundant experience with the “industry” into “academic” fields, I would like to activate academic research to respond to social needs and contribute to nurturing future academic leaders in Japan.
