    Research Interest:
    We are investigating cellular and molecular mechanisms by which gut bacteria alter our health status. Who knows how the gut commensal bacteria benefit or harm our health? Which is the good one or bad one? Our goal is to understand these processes and their physiological roles by focusing on both host immunity and commensal bacteria.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    We want to provide a good experience to be a scientist. Every lab member must have responsibility and motivation. We can provide a good environment if you are eager to devote your important time for our science. In the first several months, you will help somebody in my lab and learn experimental techniques and knowledge. If everybody in my lab realizes that you have a strong motivation, you will have more important tasks, which could be published. The most successful case should be to have own project and would be to publish the results to a journal. Please show your interests and motivation. We can support you.
