Kazuto Kawamura (Completed Ph.D. program and worked as a Junior Research Fellow)

Currently at Max Plank Institute, Germany

I received a B.S. in biology from Cornell University and worked as a research technician for two years at the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science. I researched molecular signaling pathways that promote axon regeneration in retinal neurons. I am currently interested in factors that regulate neurodegeneration and how these diseases can be treated. I believe that researching the simple nervous system of C. elegans may provide some clues to understand the complex interactions that occur between different cell-types during neurodegeneration.

"I am a PhD student at OIST with a background in computational neuroscience and machine learning. I am interested in quantifying the behaviour and dynamics of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, which can be used further to shed light on how the C. Elegans nervous system generates control signals that result in robust behaviour even in noisy sensory environments. I use a combination of theory and experiment to study this problem."
