We published a paper that describes a role of Bex1, a juvenile-expressed IDP (intrinsically disordered protein) in ciliogenesis and tubulin polymerization. We would like to thank the scientists that contributed to the research !

We published a paper on Cytoophidia, cellular macrostructure
We published a paper that describes a role of TBC1D24 that forms "Cyto-ophidia", meaning a snake in a cell, thereby modulating the GTPase enzymatic activity. Dr. Morimune, the 1st author made a tremendous effort to reveal the new function of the epilepsy-associated protein.

A high school student stayed in our lab
We welcomed a high school student with a strong interest in medicine and scientific research. During the stay in our lab for 2 weeks, the student showed special curiosity toward biology and experimental techniques to probe into human diseases. The student was good at English communication and courageous enough to visit an unfamiliar environment far from home and to meet people including me at the age around father. I hope the student found it fun and the stay was valuable and helpful for the student to enjoy life.

4th conference on “Interplay of developmental clock and extracellular environment in brain formation”
We attended the 4th conference of the Scientific Research on Innovative Areas, “Interplay of developmental clock and extracellular environment in brain formation” held in Kanazawa. Faidruz Azura Jam, Yosuke Kadota and I made presentations. Azura was awarded “the Excellent Poster Award” for her presentation on homeostasis in the developing brain. Congratulations ! We could meet great researchers aiming at shared interests. The experiences without doubt put our researches forward.
