Statement to serve the ICBS as a member of BOD

I am honored to receive a nomination to be part of the board of directors of the International Chemical Biology Society (ICBS). I uphold the mission of ICBS to promote research and educational opportunities at the interface of chemistry and biology.

I am now serving as a president of the Japanese Society for Chemical Biology and my research group in RIKEN has established joint laboratories in Germany, Korea, and China to foster young chemical biologists. If elected as a board member of the ICBS, I would like to use my experience to create an international network of chemical biologists. I am also interested in integrating scientists from different research fields to communicate new research through the International Conference of the ICBS.
