Dr. Yoshi Endo (WRC, Kyoto U) finally got his Ph.D. from Kyoto University! Congratulations!
Rodi (former assistant professor) and Xiaopeng (former postdoc) got their new positions. Interestingly, both of them joined Ritsumeikan University as an assistant professor! Thank you very much for great jobs at our lab. We wish their great success and career!
Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have many blessings in the year to come.
Our paper have been published in Optics Letters. This research was based on the collaboration with Dr. Hirori (Kyoto U), Dr. Sakaguchi (Kyoto U) and Dr. Tachizaki (Tokai U) to elucidate the effects of THz pulse on gene networks in human induced pluripotent stem cells. This paper has been introduced on iCeMS, Kyoto U website.… Read More

Finally, our recent achievement in collaboration with Prof. Murayama and Mr. Endo got published in Genome Biology and Evolution! Title: Genetic signatures of evolution of the pluripotency gene regulating network across mammals Abstract: Mammalian pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) have distinct molecular and biological characteristics among species, but to date we lack a comprehensive understanding of… Read More
A new article has been added to “iCeMS Frontrunners”. The tenth interview is with Dr Ken-ichiro Kamei. In the series, we interview the leaders who are active at the forefront of iCeMS, and ask them not only about their researches but also personal lives. Dr Kamei develops the “Body-on-a-Chip” technology, hoping to reduce the use… Read More
Dr. Kamei had an interview to tell about our research, and the video has been appeared on YouTube. We put this video at our “Achievements/Video Gallery”. Please check it out!
Our paper about “Blinking Eye on a Chip” got accepted to “Lab on a Chip” today! Rodi initiated and led this project! The paper has not appeared online yet, but you could find it at bioRxiv. Title: Multi-corneal barriers-on-a-chip to recapitulate eye blinking shear stress forces Authors: Rodi Abdalkader, Ken-ichiro Kamei Abstract: Human corneal epithelium coexists tear… Read More
