This research team is working to elucidate the clinical state of malignant skin tumors such as melanomas and squamous cell carcinoma. The laboratory debuted when I returned to Japan in April 2015. I joined the Skin Surgery Team, led by Dr. Hata, and resumed my research in Japan. The mainstream treatment for malignant skin tumors is surgery. In cases of metastasis, systemic treatments such as chemotherapies are necessary. In recent years, the efficacy of immunother-apies for melanoma has been verified; however, the further development of new therapies has been desired. The team has been searching for new therapeutic targets by using the large collection of melanoma specimens at the Department of Dermatology, Hokkaido University Hospital. The team is developing new therapies, with a focus on immunotherapies and therapies involving apoptosis. Dr. Hata, the leader of the Skin Surgery Team, is very busy not only in performing sur-gery and chemotherapy at the clinic, but also in educational activities as an assistant professor. In his busy schedule, he’s been continuing clinical research on malignant skin tumors and pathological research. Dr. Shinya Kitamura, who has started his postgraduate studies, joined the team in April. His graduate research will address skin cancer. All the other members expect him to succeed in his experiments, because he’s written lots of clinical papers, and his surgical tech-nique is excellent. Even though we’re a small research team, we’ll do our best to achieve great results that will ben-efit patients and the clinical capabilities of the hospital.
