The 4th Laboratory

Team Leader: Riichiro Abe,
Senior Associate Professor

In December 2014, Dr. Satoru Shinkuma returned from his overseas research stay and joined the 4th Lab. Dr. Shinkuma who had conducted research on establishing iPS of epidermolysis bullosa at Columbia University in New York, has teamed up with Dr. Yasuyuki Fujita who is conducting clinical experiments on a new therapy for epidermolysis bullosa. Dr. Teruki Yanagi came back from US, and joined our group. Incoming graduate course students Drs. Chihiro Nakayama and Shota Takashima have joined the Lab and started their research under Drs. Fujita and Shinkuma. The lab has become quite a force. Remarkable progress in projects is expected. The senior graduate course students, Drs. Inkin Ujiie and Wakana Matsumura, have been doing their research under the instruction of Dr. Fujita. Dr. Takamasa Ito and Ms. Asuka Sudo are researching under my guidance. All are working hard to achieve results. Dr. Keiko Nishimura, who had been searching for biomarkers in severe cases of cutaneous adverse drug reactions, took a temporary leave from research because of her family’s move out of Sapporo. She’s already obtained good results in her experiments and is working hard to wrap up the results of the analyses. I’m always grateful to lab tech Ms. Yukiko Nakamura and secretary Ms. Yukako Shibata, who’ve been supporting the lab in many ways and have been brightening the lab.

In the new year, the number of members has increased and the open lab is full of exuberance. The sight of young doctors experimenting in the lab makes us foresee a very bright future. To realize a bright, promising future, let’s work hard together.
