Speaker at International Conference on Neurology and Brain Disorders 2018 - Hiroko IKESHIMA-KATAOKA
WASEDA University, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Japan


Dr. Ikeshima-Kataoka was graduated from Keio Univ. Sch. Med. (Dept. of Microbiol.) and got Ph.D. on the functional analysis of calmodulin genes using transgenic mice. At the National Institute of Neuroscience researched on the molecular mechanism of neuronal development using fly genetics. Then, promoted back to Keio Univ. Sch. Med. (Dept. Neuroanat.) and started to focus on the “reactive astrocytes” in injured mouse brain. At Jikei Univ. Sch. Med., focus on neuroimmunological analysis in injured brain. Promoted back to Keio Univ. Sch. Med. (Dept. Pharmacol. & Neurosci.) and found that some important molecules are concerned in neuroimmunological functions of astrocytes. Now, using in vivo imaging with mouse to analyze functional role of “reactive astrocytes” at Waseda Univ., Facul. Sci. and Engin.
