Professional Summary:

My previous efforts and accomplishments illustrate continuing interest in lung cancer research. My initial training in Japan as a pulmonary physician gave me the opportunity to learn lung cancer management. Although I had already achieved a faculty position in Japan, I planned to become a physician scientist in the US in the field of thoracic oncology. I finally obtained a faculty position in 2013 to conduct clinical and research activity at The University of Kansas Medical Center.

I will continue to work in this field. I have experience in translational research. I will try to develop a novel treatment in lung cancer by conducting investigator-initiated trials (IITs) with immunotherapy and others in thoracic oncology. I will also work on population and hospital based data research in oncology.
