Biography:

  • I has been investigating the molecular basis underlying human T-cell leukemia virus type-1, HTLV-1, -mediated pathogenesis. HTLV-1 infection causes adult T-cell leukemia (ATL), an aggressive malignancy of T lymphocytes.
  • To date, there are few effective therapies available for ATL patients, possibly due to a lack of detailed information about the molecular mechanism of cell growth regulation and disruption of cellular homeostasis by HTLV-1.
