Mohamed Hegazy Mohamed Ahmed

Visiting researcher

Hello. I am Hegazy an Egyptian postdoctoral fellow. I obtained my Ph.D. from Kanazawa University, Japan in September 2016. Then, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Kunming Medical University, China (2018-2020). I’m very happy to finally join Sada sensei Lab. In Dr. Aiko's group, I will be focusing on defining the metabolic alterations in epidermal stem cells in both mice and human skin. I hope our research would have a great impact on the scientific field and importantly translated to improve human health. During my free time, I enjoy watching football (Soccer), Fishing, and Traveling.

Mizuho Ishikawa

Postdoctoral Fellow

Hi, I am Mizuho Ishikawa. I graduated from Tottori University and now I joined Dr. Sada's lab as a postdoc. I am interested in skin stem cells, aging, and vasculature. Through doing research on stem cells and aging in this lab, I hope to solve a part of the mystery of life phenomena as much as possible.
