Research report from abroard

Kentaro Izumi at Lübeck University, Germany

I’ve been studying at Lübeck University in Germany, where I’m analyzing how inflammation is regulated by complements in autoimmune bullous diseaes.

I’m trying hard to learn in vitro experimental techniques, including ROS release assays and cryosection assays. I’ll gradually move on to in vivo mouse experiments. In order to do animal experiments in Germany, I had to complete more than 20 hours of e-learning, participate in a three-day basic seminar on animal experiments, and pass a writing test on the final day. I took the test in Berlin just the other day. To my relief, I was able to pass it and get certification.

My overseas studies and research have been precious experiences. I deeply appreciate many people: Prof. Hiroshi Shimizu and Dr. Wataru Nishie, who’ve guided me in graduate school and in preparations for overseas study; the other doctors and laboratory technicians in the Hokkaido University Department of Dermatology; and the doctors of Koshikai. I’d like to learn as much as possible by the time I return to Japan.
