Ph.D. student (double degree program)

I am so grateful to have an opportunity to be part of Dr. Aiko' s team. As a Thai pharmacist who is interested in clinical pharmacy and health informatics, getting more knowledge of skin regeneration and aging will be consolidated and conducted for my drug discovery research.

Ph.D. student (MEXT)

Hi! I am a Vietnamese PhD student. I am curious about the mechanism of aging in the skin and the way the skin responds to various intrinsic and extrinsic stresses during the aging process.  And now I am working with Dr. Sada to clarify the mechanism of epidermal stem cell aging and tissue regeneration. I hope that my studies will contribute to elucidating further skin aging and may be applied to provide a new therapeutic strategy to prevent skin aging and contribute to healthy longevity.

Ph.D. student (MEXT)

 

Hello!  I am Trisha from Bangladesh. I have interests in the epigenetics, stem cells, skin renewal and aging process. Currently, I am working with Dr. Aiko Sada. I am so glad to have a great team here. I also hope that I will improve my understanding of this field and can utilize my knowledge for future skin research. Though It is my new journey in the field of skin regeneration, I hope this new journey will be the best journey in my life. I like to spend leisure time by singing, reading story books and travelling.

Ahmed Gamal Kamel Habib

Visiting researcher

Hi, my name is Ahmed. I am from Egypt. I graduated from Hiroshima University.  Currently, I am a visiting researcher in Dr. Sada’s lab. I am interested in understanding the mechanisms that regulate epidermal stem cell aging and exploring how the stem cells of the skin behave during aging. I hope my work will lead to identify new selective targets for the development of therapies for aging-related diseases in the skin, including cancer and improve human health longevity.
