Shintaro Iwasaki, Ph.D.Chief Scientist (RIKEN)/Visiting Associate Professor (The University of Tokyo) Life is full of unknowns. Still simple and fundamental questions have not been answered. Our lab welcomes anybody who share such a question and enjoy science with us.
Rie YokoyamaAdministrative Assistant I’m helping to create a good atmosphere for everyone to focus on research. I often go hiking in my free time.
Miho TsunashimaAdministrative Assistant I am happy to be here in the Iwasaki Lab. and will support your administrative work!
Mari MitoLab Technician It is quite exciting to work close to novel discovery. I would like to support research by courteous experiments.
Yuichi Shichino, Ph.D.Research Scientist I’m interested in the fundamental mechanisms of the translation initiation process. It is one of the most exciting moment of research when I find a clue of fact from unintended results.
Naohiro Kawamoto, Ph.D.RIKEN Special Postdoctoral Researcher I focus on the important role of translation in the circadian clock and vice versa. The translation mechanisms of plants, algae and cyanobacteria are also of interest to me. I hope to develop research that people will find exciting.
Hirotaka Toh, Ph.D.JSPS PD Researcher I would like to frontier new science fields at my own pace.
Akira Yamashita, Ph.D.Postdoctoral Researcher I have been focusing my research on the nervous system, but I would like to expand my research interest from now on.
Hironori Saito, Ph.D.Research Part-time Worker I I'll work hard to catch up with lab members. I play XC skiing. I like running in nature as well.
Taisei WakigawaResearch Associate I am very excited to start a project in a new environment. I would like to enjoy science.
Kotaro TomuroRIKEN Junior Research Associate/Student Trainee/WINGS-PES Fellow/Ph.D. Student (The University of Tokyo) I am grateful for the opportunity to conduct research in this perfect environment. I would like to cherish originality and philosophy in my science.
