Outline of the research
My research theme is based on the question, "How does the immune-system in our body work for the disease control?". In particular, the immune system are deeply involved in cancer biology. In fact, cancer immunotherapy was recently established as a powerful way to treat cancer, however, there still have a disadvantage to overcome unless the treatment is truly effective to all cancer patients. Currently, I aim to develop a novel strategy for cancer immunothrapy by using a drug which will regulates immune system.
Thoughts on research
In my opinion, research is not a one-man play but team play to achieve good results.
One for all, All for one.
