Meeting with Tamotsu Yoshimori
During my trip to Osaka, I had a honor to meet with Tamotsu Yoshimori-sensei, Professor at Department of Genetics, Graduate School of Medicine / Laboratory of Intracellular Membrane Dynamics, Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences at Osaka University.
Prof. Yoshimori and Prof. Ohsumi (who won #Nobel prize for his work) had previously performed research together at the National Institute for Basic Biology in Okazaki, Aichi.
(Autophagy is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells.)
You can read the details here if interested:
I am personally interested in the #innovation of #longevity field and asked so many questions to understand well, what is #autophagy, how it works, and what needs to be done to increase the “health life span” of people, what want kind of cross border and cross industry collaboration is needed in order to accelerate innovation, so that we can cure #dementia, #Alzheimer, #diabetes and so many diseases with their research work.
Thank you prof. Yoshimori for your time and
the knowledge you shared.
