Tetsuro Kobayashi, DVM/PhD
Future Leaders Symposium
Dissecting Atopic Inflammation of Adam17/Sox9 Mice by Microbiome and Single Cell Transcriptome Analysis
Dr. Kobayashi obtained a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in 2007 and a PhD degree from Gifu University in 2010. Dr. Kobayashi conducted a postdoctoral training as a research fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science at Keio University School of Medicine in Japan between 2011 and 2014. Dr. Kobayashi joined Dr. Keisuke Nagao’s laboratory at Keio University School of Medicine (Tokyo, Japan) in 2011 and has conducted research on the skin immunity, particularly in the context of atopic dermatitis. He re-joined Dr. Nagao’s laboratory at the NIH in 2014 as Dr. Nagao made his transition. Dr. Kobayashi has studied mechanisms involved in the interactions between immune cells and microbiome in skin. He currently extends his area of focus to understand how the skin microbiota is regulated and maintained by host-immunity in both steady state and diseased conditions.
