Nobuyoshi Shiojiri

Masakazu Suzuki Professor / Shizuoka
Endocrinology
We study the molecular mechanisms for the adaptation of vertebrates to environments, maintenance of homeostasis, reproduction, development of endocrine organs, mainly using fish and amphibians, to understand the diversity and evolution of vertebrates, and further the fundamental biological processes common to all vertebrates. We also intend to apply novel functional molecules to advanced medical and industrial technologies.

Yuichi Takikawa Professor / Shizuoka
Plant Pathology
The main focus of my research is identification and classification of plant pathogenic bacteria, especially on analysing how genetic differences have caused the pathogens to have different host plants and symptoms, and on rapid and easy detection methods of them.
Yuichi Takikawa

Hirobumi Takenouchi Professor / Shizuoka
philosophy, bioethics, environmental ethics
Focusing on the inseparable relationship between life(bios) and the environment, our laboratory looks into current questions in the modern society as to achieve a new integrative way of research for bioethics and environmental ethics.
Hirobumi Takenouchi

Toshinobu Tokumoto Professor / Shizuoka
Reproductive Biology
We want to demonstrate the molecular mechanisms to enter the meiotic cell division through membrane steroid receptor on oocyte surface by non-genomic steroid actions.
