Summary of Research
Shin-Ichi FUKUOKA started his career to be a scientist in biological science and had education at Kyoto University in Japan (BA,MA and Ph.D), Rockefeller University and Harvard Medical School (postdoc). His research field has been exocrine pancreas, secretory pathway, membrane-anchored proteins, tryptophan metabolism in the brain and mad cow disease (BSE). He is doing a theoretical modeling of the dynamic equilibrium which makes life alive. He has run laboratories and taught at Kyoto University and Aoyama Gakuin University (Tokyo).
His research team has published papers in prestigious scientific journals including Nature, JBC, PNAS and Pros One. He is now a visiting professor at Rockefeller University (NYC) to continue the research. The whole list of publications are shown in below.
