Our Muse cell study collaborated with Prof. Mari Dezawa is ahead of print as review article in Stem Cells Transl Med.
Donor Muse Cell Treatment Without HLA-Matching Tests and Immunosuppressant Treatment. Stem Cells Transl Med, ahead of print (Online first published: 2024 Apr 01). doi: 10.1093/stcltm/szae018.
In this review, we describe the unique characteristics of Muse cells clarified through preclinical and clinical studies and discuss their potential application for cell therapy.

Another one is collaborated with Neurosurgery of Kohan Hospital and Neurosurgery of Tohoku University Hospital, published in Neuroendovasc Ther.
Endovascular Treatment of Wide-Neck Bifurcation Aneurysm: Recent Trends in Coil Embolization with Adjunctive Technique. J Neuroendovasc Ther 18(3):75-83, 2024. doi: 10.5797/jnet.ra.2023-0072.
This review describes the recent trends in adjunctive techniques for supporting coil embolization for Wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms (WNBAs).

Spring 2024 has come! Members, and other updates

It’s been a long time since we last posted an update.
Many of our students successfully graduated and we welcomed new members to our lab since then.

Graduated students:
Zhou Yuan (2023, doctor), Zhang Tianxiang (2023, doctor), Daisuke Ando (2024, doctor), Keita Tominaga (2024, doctor),
Atsushi Nakayashiki (2024, doctor), Shota Yamashita (2024, doctor).

Dr. Zhou and Dr. Zhang has returned their home country, and are active in their respective workplaces. Dr. Ando is continuing to work on his research and advising of our students (much appreciated!) as Assistant Professor since April 2024. Dr. Tominaga will soon be studying in New York. Dr. Nakayashiki, Dr. Yamashita has returned to their clinical work.

New members:
Takashi Aikawa (Oct 2023 D3), Keigo Mizuno (Oct 2023 D3), Tomohito Nagai (Apr 2024 D3), Tetsuya Hayashi (Apr 2024 D3),
Hajime Ikenouchi (Apr 2024 D1), Yuko Iwasaki (Apr 2024 D1).
Ms. Iwasaki graduated from the Clinical Analytical Laboratory (Saigusa Laboratory) of Teikyo University School of Pharmacy, which is collaborating with our laboratory.
We are honored that she has shown interest in our laboratory through our joint research and that she has chosen our laboratory as her place of further study!

We held a welcome party outside the laboratory on April 12, which was pretty convivial evening for lab members.

Our laboratory has the largest number of members since its establishment, and it is becoming more and more active.
We’re also expanding the lab space to accommodate our expanding member list and research needs.

We have also published several preprints and articles, which you can find posted on our website.

Please stay tuned for more updates.
