My research topic is bioanalytical chemistry including bio- and chemiluminescence in molecular assemblies functioning as a reaction field for highly sensitive assay, and microfluidics for biomedical analytical devices.
I am involved in the Nitobe program as a lecturer from the kickoff of this program, 3 years ago. You can learn many things thru this program, in which students having various specialties and cultures bring together in the class, and tackle various issues proactively thru in-class discussion and field-work. The program is not easy and everything depends on you, but this must be a precious experience for your future. The most important thing is to… Enjoy the Nitobe Program!
