Aiko Sada graduated from Shizuoka University, Japan and obtained her Bachelor’s degree in 2006. She received a Ph.D. in 2011 from the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, Japan for her studies on RNA-binding protein Nanos2 in spermatogonial stem cells under the supervision of Dr. Yumiko Saga.

 

Soon after her graduation, she joined Dr. Tudorita Tumbar’s laboratory at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY as a postdoctoral fellow, where she worked on identification and characterization of epidermal stem cells. She is a recipient of a long-term fellowship from Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) and fellowships from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).

 

In 2016, she completed her postdoc training, moved back to Japan and started as Assistant professor at Tsukuba Advanced Research Alliance (TARA), University of Tsukuba. In 2019 October, she was promoted to Associate professor and started her own laboratory at IRCMS, Kumamoto University. She is currently studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms of skin regeneration and aging.
