Industry-academia collaboration 【 display / non-display

  • I aim to collaborate with companies who are interested in my research about taste and abdominal sensation. I would like to share our knowledge with other researchers to contribute to both academia as well as industry. I will also try to protect our intellectual properties to be utilized in the bio-venture companies.
