Skin Stem Cell Research Team(Natsuga)

The Skin Stem Cell Research Team is working to analyze skin epithelial stem cells and their behavior, and to elucidate their association with skin diseases, wound healing, and aging. We are also working to elucidate the pathophysiology of rare and intractable diseases such as epidermolysis bullosa and pachyonychia congenita. Past members include Mika Watanabe (Graduated in 2017, currently at the University of Turin), Yu Fujimura (Graduated in 2021, currently at KKR Sapporo Medical Center), Shota Takashima (Graduated in 2019 [Under the guidance of Nara Medical University Professor Shinkuma Satoru], currently at UCSD). Current members are Yunan Wang (graduated in 2021), Hideyuki Kosumi, Yosuke Mai (concurrent with the Autoimmune Blistering Diseases Research Team), and Takuma Nohara.
