Background and Research Interest
My thesis research focused on uncovering the relationships between growth factors, the receptors of EGF-family and the proliferation of colorectal cancer at Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine, Yokohama, Japan. Patients having cancer suffer the consequences of aggressive treatment that includes surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. To resolve the problem in complicated cancer medical systems, my recent interest includes the development of the translational research and personalized medicine in cancer risk prediction, diagnosis and treatment. My goal is to establish a systematic approach to translate new discoveries from basic research and genomic analysis into practical and routine health care use leading to preventive and personalized medicine.
