From 2 to 8 December 2017, Dr. Hidehiro Kondo, Associate Professor, Department of Marine Biosciences visited Cuba by the support of TUMSAT's program for promoting international joint research. He participated in the international conference "Biotechnology Habana 2017", and had meetings for joint research with Cuban researchers. Here is the report from Dr. Kondo.
We, laboratory of genome science, have performed comprehensive gene expression analysis in fish and shellfish to reveal the immune system against pathogens. Cuban researcher, Dr. Rebeca Martinez, requests us for the collaboration to reveal the detailed mechanisms how their peptide drug works in fish. To start a joint research, I visited Cuba and participated in the international conference "Biotechnology Habana 2017". At the symposium, I introduced our achievements, and they showed me their results. After the presentation, we discussed on the further collaboration and made plans for financial supports on our research.
