I had been working with Dr. Roberto Mayor (UCL, United Kingdom) to study the mechanism of cranial neural crest migration. Now I have moved to Japan, and start to organize kind of independent group. My research interest is finding common factors regulating neural crest migration and cancer cell migration. Especially I'm intersted how those factors are strictly regulated in development, and how they lost control in cancer.
