My training as an academic pulmonologist in Japan and the US motivated me to seek new treatments for pulmonary fibrosis. After completing my medical training in my native country, I traveled to the US and earned an MPH degree at Emory University, to develop the skills required for conducting human research. Upon completing this degree, I then pursued clinical fellowship in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, where my clinical experience with pulmonary fibrosis – an incurable and fatal form of progressive interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) – inspired me to devote my career to developing new treatments for this condition. In pursuit of this goal, I started my postdoctoral fellowship at Yale in the laboratory of Dr. Erica Herzog, where I am currently working to translate a newly discovered neuro-innate fibrotic mechanism involving interactions between nerve derived noradrenaline and lung macrophages expressing alpha1 adrenoreceptors into treatments for pulmonary fibrosis.
