Research topics
The mechanism of regulation of inflammation by the factors from blood in the chronic phase of ischemic stroke and its therapeutic application
Using a mouse model of ischemic stroke, it has been suggested that post-infarction inflammation is suppressed in serum and blood cells during the chronic phase of cerebral infarction. We will clarify the factors that confer inflammatory resistance to cerebral infarction that exist in blood after cerebral infarction.


I am very honored to have been selected for the Inamori Research Grants Program. I hope to conduct research that will lead to a breakthrough treatment.
