Prof. UMEMURA Kazuo
Tokyo University of Science, Japan
Biography: Dr. Kazuo Umemura is a full professor of Tokyo University of Science. His specialty is biophysics, especially, nanobioscience and nanobiotechnology. One of his recent interests is nanoscopic research of hybrids of biomolecules and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Unique structures and physical/chemical properties of the hybrids are promising in biological applications such as nanobiosensors and drug delivery.
Dr. Umemura received his B.S. degree in Physics from Nagoya University. His M.S. and Ph.D. degrees were given from Tokyo Institute of Technology. After working at several institutes/universities as a researcher in Japan and in China, he became a professor of Tokyo University of Science. Kagurazaka campus of Tokyo University of Science is located at the center of Tokyo, so five subway/railway lines reach in front of the campus.
