I am currently serving as a staff physician at Emergency and Critical Care Medical Center, Fukushima Medical University (FMU) Hospital. I am also conducting the laboratory work, as a postdoctoral researcher at Department of Pharmacology, FMU. My time is divided between researches (both clinical and laboratory); clinical practice; and teaching.
My clinical background is emergency medicine, intensive care medicine, and anesthesiology. My major research interests are: emergency airway management; trauma; emergency surgery; perioperative medicine; and sepsis. My clinical research work have featured in a series of publication [Scand J Trauma Resusc Emerg Med. 2016;24:106, and J Anesth. 2016;30:644-52].
To elucidate the etiology of ICU acquired weakness associated with severe sepsis, I am currently investigating using mouse sepsis model and established myoblast cell lines, in collaboration with Dr Shimomura and Dr Maejima, Department of Pharmacology, FMU, Japan. My laboratory research work have featured in a series of publication [PLoS One. 2017;12:e0182040, and J Pharmacol Sci. 2017;133:276-279].
As a board certified acute care physician; and anesthesiologist, I carry out my clinical service at the Emergency Department at FMU hospital. I am also involved in ICU inpatients and clinical supervisory role of junior and senior residents.
The majority of my teaching activity takes place at FMU. I regularly give 5th year medical school students lecture and practice on endotracheal intubation using simulators. I also teach paramedical student at Fukushima Fire Academy.
Integrating these multifaceted activities of clinical and basic science research, clinical service, and teaching, I am striving to develop my academic career as a physicinan scientist with expertise in airway management, trauma, and sepsis.
