It is possible to directly compare phenomena occurring in the earth with phenomena occurring in the laboratory!



1.What kind of the research are you doing?

We are developing “an agricultural chemical without side effects”. Specifically, we are trying to create a molecule that can selectively activates a part of physiological functions in planta. We are studying “How are proteins in planta controlled?”, “What kind of interactions between proteins and molecules can bring out a desired function?”, and “What kind of chemical structures is needed?”

2.What is the reason for starting your study?

I wondered “What is there between atom-molecule and physiological phenomena?” in high school. So, I wanted to solve this question and was interested in a research that approaches biology with chemical methods.

3.Message for prospective students

Do you have an occasion that you think “That is amazing.”? It is not limited to study and research, and the life is repetition of having questions and thinking “That is amazing.” by investigating the reasons and understanding them. I think that the faculty of science is a place where it respects our questions “Why is it?”. If you want to seek answers for your questions, I recommend this university to you.
