I work as a neurosurgeon in Japan , and I have always been interested in cancer research. Memorial Sloan Kettering is one of the top cancer centers in the world. I knew the research environment at Memorial Sloan Kettering would provide me with the best opportunity to do truly meaningful cancer research. I hope to use the knowledge I’ve gained here in my pursuit of treating my patients in Japan. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy playing tennis on public courts in New York City.
