2017 Overview of Departmental Research Laboratories
Research teams are working day and night to advance the frontiers of dermatological science. Great progress is expected.

Team Ujiie, Team Nomura, Team Natsuga, Team Iwata and Team Yanagi. Each team has a team leader who is a senior associate professor, an associate professor or an assistant professor. Each team specializes in certain areas and includes Ph.D. course students and technicians. Some teams also have postdoctoral researchers and graduate students from overseas. The members have devoted themselves to their research, realizing 120% of their potential. Dr. Hata, who has excelled as the leader of the Skin Surgery Team, has been cooperating with Team Yanagi to research of tumors.

2nd and 3rd Dermatology Laboratories

2nd Dermatology Laboratories
(on the 3rd floor of the South Research Building)

In 2017, Dr. Zheng Miao and Dr. Wang Yunan, from China, joined the department and commenced research as a specially invited assistant professor from overseas and a PH.D. course student, respectivelly. All the members report their research achievement by e-mail periodically to their team leader and me. The reports are called Weekly Reports and Monthly Reports. By visualizing the research status of each graduate student, we can understand the status of each research project and instruct those students. It helps the individuals and the groups.

1st and 4th Dermatology Laboratories

1st and 4th Dermatology Laboratories
(on the 7th floor of the Medical and Dental Building)

In FY2017, four female Ph.D. course students wrote excellent dissertations. Dr. Ellen Toyonaga’s paper was accepted by the JID (under the instruction of Dr. Nishie). Dr. Mika Watanabe’s paper was accepted by eLife (under the instruction of Dr. Natsuga). Dr. Inkin Ujiie’s paper was accepted by the JDS (under the instruction of Dr. Fujita). And Dr. Yuka Oguchi’s paper was accepted by the JID (under the instruction of Dr. Nomura). All of these authors delivered great presentations on their research and earned their Ph.D.’s. Some of them had a hard time after giving birth and caring for children, I think, but they strongly made efforts and achieved great results.
I feel very grateful for this.I hope that all the members will pursue research and that even better results than last year will be successively achieved in the Hokkaido University Department of Dermatology in 2018.
