Basement Membrane / Skin Barrier Team (Iwata)

Nearly two years have passed since study of the new tight junction theme began, and we were able to publish an original paper on tight junctions in the oral mucosa. On the other hand, the kind of pemphigoid research that we have been working on for a long time is moving ever onward to the end of its story. Dr. Mayumi Kamaguchi (Faculty of Dentistry, Graduated in 2019) started her research at Hokkaido University in 2013, has studied pemphigoid and is currently at L├╝beck University in Germany. Currently, Dr. Keisuke Imafuku is working on tight junction research.

Major research results since 2016
