I have studied mechanisms of cell polarity establishment and maintenance, which is basis for differentiation of unicellular and multicellular organisms by focusing on the role of membrane trafficking. Besides these, I newly start to study the mechanisms of plant meristem and stem cell differentiation, which is crucial for plant organ formation. I also start to study mechanisms of plant-plant allelopathic interactions.


I am fascinated by the beauty and mystique of biological activity. I would like to share these thoughts by working together with you in our lab. I understand that the period in university is important before starting your career. Therefore besides research activities, I would also like to focus on educational activities. If you are interested in in Kyozuka lab, please let me know. I am very happy to introduce our lab. I am currently looking for people working together in our lab.
