Postdoctoral fellow

  • Previous research: Neuropathology (glioblastoma), neuronal cell biology (expression of Peg10 in CNS).
  • Future plans: What is bioinformatics? I have been grasping it ambiguously. But I heard there are many “-informatics”-including journal name. So currently I am interested in “neuroinformatics” and so on, which was my major. And I want to widen my perspectives through these journals.
  • Hobbies: Language
  • Favorite adage: See the Good In Others.
