Associate ProfessorI isolate and identify gut commensal bacteria exhibiting protective effects against pathogenic bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. By colonizing the intestinal tract with these beneficial bacteria in the gut, I aim to establish a strategy for acquiring a characteristic of resistance to the infection. Furthermore, I focus on understanding the role of diet, host immunity, and metabolites produced by intestinal bacteria and seek to elucidate the mechanisms of how gut commensal bacteria prevent pathogen colonization and infection.
Recent Topics of Interests:
・Exploring the dynamics and control mechanisms of pathogenic microorganisms and resident microorganisms in the gut
・Investigating the mechanisms by which gut microorganisms prevent infectious diseases.
・Examining the role of gut microorganisms in vaccine efficacy
・Developing genetic modification technology for intestinal bacteria
Motto in Research or in Life: Fortune favors the brave.
Hobby / Holiday:
I enjoy fishing and watching baseball, especially Hanshin Tigers and MLB, and spending most of my time with my child on weekends.
