The 1st Laboratory

Team Leader: Toshifumi Nomura,
Assistant Professor

The 1st Lab has been conducting research on hereditary diseases, ichthyoses and palmoplantar keratosis in particular. The happiest news for the lab last year was Dr. Osamu Mizuno receiving his Ph.D. Dr. Mizuno collected many case records of patients with Nagashima-type palmoplantar keratosis and conducted analyses including those for next-generation sequencing. He confirmed that the cause of this disease is mutations in the SERPINB7 gene and that the disease can be pseudo-dominantly inherited. I’d like to thank him for his hard work. Dr. Toshinari Miyauchi started his research as a graduate course student just after Dr. Mizuno completed his course. I strongly expect Dr. Miyauchi, who’s an excellent researcher with plenty of grit, to achieve great results.

Dr. Yuka Oguchi and Mr. Shotaro Suzuki have been working hard as Ph.D. students. Dr. Oguchi has been steadily conducting R&D for a readthrough drug. I believe she’ll be getting results in the near future. Mr. Suzuki has come very close to identifying a new causative gene for ichthyoses. A considerable result is expected. Ms. Mai Takeda, a lab tech who’s achieved a high level of proficiency in many experiment techniques, has been supporting the lab. The members of the 1st Lab will continue our efforts to analyze hereditary keratoses and elucidate the mechanism of stratum corneum formation. I’d like to ask the readers for their continued guidance and for their assistance in referring patients.
