Shintaro Iwasaki, Ph.D.Chief Scientist (RIKEN)/Associate Professor (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.
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.Postdoctoral Researcher 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.
Jagat ChhipishresthaStudent Trainee/PhD. Student (RIKEN/University of Tokyo, Yoshida lab) I am studying the mechanism of epigenetic & translational regulation by the small molecule inhibitors. I am highly grateful for providing me the ideal environment to flourish my knowledge and skills. Mysteries of nature motivate and inspire me to explore more.
Yusuke KimuraStudent Trainee/Master's Student (University of Tokyo, Tomari lab) I'm interested in intercellular functions of small RNA. It's not democracy that you set off a riot against election returns. After We got a bad result for us, it's very important to consider how to behave. It is also important in our Reseach, isn’t it?
Tomoya FujitaStudent Trainee/Master's Student (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Taguchi lab) Using E.coli, I’m investigating coupling between ribosome and nascent peptide. My hobby is playing futsal.
Agathe GilbertStudent Trainee/Master's Student (INSA of Lyon/University of Tokyo) Thanks to this internship, I can work on epitranscriptomics that is the study on biochemical modifications of RNA. So many new technologies and technics to discover here!
Shiho Makino, Ph.D.Research Fellow (Postdoctoral Researcher) (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Ohsumi lab) I study molecular mechanism of RNA degradation via autophagy and its physiological functions.
