I graduated from Kobe University with a Ph.D. (Doctorate of Medical Science) in 2008. I then carried out clinical treatment and translational research on gynecological cancer, as a Clinician Fellow at Hyogo Cancer Center and an Assistant Professor at Kobe University in Japan. Through these experiences, I have mainly worked on biomarkers, but I have become very interested in the molecular mechanism of tumorigenesis and sensitivity to treatment, and establishment of innovative treatment strategies for improving survival of patients. I kept thinking that I would like to have the opportunity to perform basic research.
In December 2018, I joined the Cell Division and Cancer lab at CNIO to work on mechanisms on sensitivity to CDK inhibitors..
