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 good atmosphere for everyone to focus on research. I often go hiking in 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 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.Visiting Researcher/JSPS Research Fellow (PD) 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.Visiting Researcher/JSPS Research Fellow (PD) I would like to frontier new science fields at my own pace.
Peixun Han, Ph.D.Visiting Researcher/JSPS Research Fellow (PD) Love fluffy animals!
Antonios ApostolopoulosInternational Program Associate/Ph.D. Student (The University of Tokyo) I am interested in developing methods to manipulate mRNA translation. It’s fun when you bump into unexpected results!
Sylvia AlmeidaInternational Program Associate/Ph.D. Student (University of Tronto) My research focuses on the relationship between translation and the protein degradation, with the goal of exploring translation inhibitors as a therapeutic avenue to treat diseases of proteasome dysfunction such as the rare disease NGLY1 Deficiency.
Hironori SaitoJunior Research Associate/Student Trainee/Ph.D. Student (The University of Tokyo) I'll work hard to catch up with lab member. I play xc skiing. I like running in nature as well.
Taisei WakigawaJSPS Research Fellow (DC2)/SPRING GX Fellow/Student Trainee/Ph.D. Student (The University of Tokyo) I am very excited to start a project in a new environment. I would like to enjoy science.
Kotaro TomuroRIKEN Student Researcher/WINGS-PES Fellow/Student Trainee/Master's 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.
Yuma TsukadaStudent Trainee/Master's Student (The University of Tokyo) I am happy to work on what I want to know in the ideal environment. I want to do my best!
