His thesis focused on the therapeutic potential of hepatocyte-like cells differentiated from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). After joining Fuji Laboratories, the pharmacology department in Kowa Company Japan, he evaluated the effects of over-the-counter drugs and safety pharmacology in drugs under development. He joined CICS in 2022. Under the mentorship of Dr. Masanori Aikawa, he has been examining the interaction of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) and protein in macrophage activation. His goal is to develop new drugs targeting lncRNA-protein interaction for cardiovascular diseases.
