A Year in Review: 2021

Continuing from last year, 2021 was a year in which overseas business trips and acceptance of researchers from overseas were restricted due to the influence of COVID-19. In addition, instability of democracy such as turmoil caused by military government in Myanmar also had a negative impact on our international joint research. Nevertheless, it was a year in which great results were obtained from the publication of 8 papers and 9 presentations at academic conferences. In his personal life, Takahashi was very pleased to be a torchbearer at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which was a great success even though it was threatened by COVID.

Ken Takahashi Wins Prestigious Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research from JSPS

Research project will study a new way to tackle myocardial infarction, stroke, and damage after kidney transplantation caused by ischemia–reperfusion injury Assistant Professor Ken Takahashi, Ph.D. at Okayama University was awarded Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B) by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. JSPS is Japan’s sole independent funding agency with a mission of advancing science. The research fund carries an award of ~$140K to uncover the common mechanism for myocardial infarction, stroke, and damage after kidney transplantation. Ischemia–reperfusion injury occurs when blood perfusion is resumed after hours of restricted blood supply. During the ischemic period, toxic reactive oxygen species are accumulated in the blood.
