Future Plan
Currently, the strength of our lab is in the analysis of transcripts, RNAs that are transcribed from genome. I wish to use this strength to characterize and understand human diseases.

Messages to Students
Japanese speaking and listening abilities can make your social life in Japan much easier. Enjoy Japan, as you enjoy science.
