Research work

Mariko Jitsukawa:
・Cultural anthropology (fertility regulation, taboo and abstinence)
・International cooperation (public health, gender) especially culture and communication

NOZAKI’s academic specialties are Philosophy of Law, and Health Care Law and Ethics. My research interest is on “Relational Right and Responsibility” theory. I'm currently working on issues of the reason to regulate individual liberties by law in our society with medical technology.
Takeshi Sato:
Theme of my research is “Biological Chemistry on the Membrane”.  I have been trying to elucidate how membrane protein changes its structure to function by using spectroscopic techniques such as solid state NMR, FT-IR, etc.  For details, please refer to my site on Google Scholar or Researchgate.  
Takashi Sakamoto:
History of thought in 20th century France.

KISHINO Ryōji received both his BA (2004) and MA (2006) in Buddhist Studies from Kyoto University in Japan, and his PhD (2013) from UCLA. His research focuses on Buddhist monastic codes (Skt. vinaya) preserved in Chinese, Indic (P?li and Sanskrit), and Tibetan. He is primarily concerned with trying to know the daily lives and religious activities of Buddhist monks and nuns in India. Moreover, he is currently reading Gakunyo's 學如 (1716–1773) and Bu ston's (1290–1364) works on the M?lasarv?stiv?da-vinaya to understand how it was transmitted and circulated in Japanese and Tibetan Buddhist traditions.

Daisuke IWASAKI:
IWASAKI’s research interests are German literature, especially Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803). Currently, he is interested in Herder’s “rebirth philosophy”(“Palingenesie”-Gedanke) and is investigating the link between his humanitarian philosophy and linguistic philosophy. He has studied German teaching methods and is working effective German teaching methods.

Hiroko Tamagaki-Asahina:
I focused on the structural analysis of single-pass transmembrane proteins in lipid bilayer using polarized FT-IR, fluorescence experiment and solid-state NMR.  Also, based on the structural change model of membrane proteins, I have been trying to create synthetic proteins as chemical tools.  For details, please refer to Google Scholar.
