Dr. Satoru Yamagishi received a Master degree and a PhD in Biology from the Department of Biological Science, Faculty of Science, Osaka University (Osaka, Japan). He then undertook post-doctoral training at Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University (Osaka, Japan). During his postdoctoral training, he has been involved in research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Then he moved to Graduate School of Medicine, Chiba University (Chiba, Japan) before joining the Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Max-Planck-Institute of Neurobiology (Munich, Germany). During the postdoctoral period, he has been working on cortical development. Then he moved to Hamamatsu University School of Medicine as an assistant professor. His research interest is in neuronal migration, axon guidance molecules, stroke, and neurodegenerative disorders. He has published more than 20 original research articles in journals including EMBO J, J Neurosci, J Cell Biol, J Biol Chem, Front Cell Neurosci, PLoS ONE, Etc.
Currently, Dr. Yamagishi focuses on molecular neuroscience and looking for novel axon guidance molecules in the brain and its relevance to neuronal disorders.
