Toshio Suda is an MD from Yokohama City University School of Medicine. He was Professor of the Department of Cell Differentiation at Kumamoto University School of Medicine, now he is Professor of Developmental Biology at Keio University. Toshio Suda and others identified the niche for hematopoietic stem cells and subsequently established the new field of oxidative stress and stem cell aging. The interaction of stem cells and niche is one of hot topics for the stem cell and cancer biology.
1. Manipulation of the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) niche for the ex vivo expansion of HSCs 2. Elucidation of niche involvement in the pathophysiology of hematopoietic malignancies along with the identification of molecular targets of diseases. 3. Identification of stemness-related cis-regulatory elements 4. Establishment of human stem cell niche in immunodeficient mouse
