Mr. Shinichi Miyazaki, (4th year student, Ph.D. Program in Humanics, University of Tsukuba), published a first author paper in iScience (Cell Press).

Title: Intracellular Ca 2+ dynamics in the ALA neuron reflect sleep pressure and regulate sleep in Caenorhabditis elegans

[Message from Mr. Miyazaki]
From programming to creating genetically modified worms, it has been hard work. This project has just begun; we are trying to understand sleep regulatory mechanisms using worms.

Ms. Hibiki Okamura (2nd year student, Ph.D. Program in Humanics, University of Tsukuba) published a first author paper in eNeuro.

Title: Long-Term Effects of Repeated Social Defeat Stress on Brain Activity during Social Interaction in BALB/c Mice
Published online April 18, 2022

Authors: Hibiki Okamura, Shinnosuke Yasugaki, Haruka Suzuki-Abe, Yoshifumi Arai, Katsuyasu Sakurai, Masashi Yanagisawa, Hotaka Takizawa and Yu Hayashi

[Message from Hibiki]
I presented a paper that included both neuroscience and image processing engineering. I believe that I could make this achievement because of the Ph.D. Program in Humanics, which is characterized by the fusion of different fields of study. It has been a valuable experience for me. I would like to thank everyone who helped me.

Mr. Shinichi Miyazaki (3rd year student, Ph.D. Program in Humanics, University of Tsukuba) performed a poster presentation at Materials Research Meeting (MRM) 2021 and received “Graduate Student Award “.
(December, 2021)

The presentation title is “Lipids and proteins changes during heat-shock-induced sleep detected by CARS and SHG microscopy”.

[Message from Shinichi]
I am grateful for this award. Although it was difficult to communicate with researchers in the material sciences, it gave me a good opportunity to think about how to communicate my biological research to researchers in non-biological fields.

Achievement

A co-authored paper by Mr. Shinichi Miyazaki (3rd year student, Ph.D. Program in Humanics, University of Tsukuba) has been accepted by The Journal of Chemical Physics.
Mr. Miyazaki analyzed the data measured by a graduate of Professor Kano’s Lab and summarized it into the figures. The paper was accepted to the Journal of Chemical Physics, an international peer-reviewed scientific journal.
(2021)

[Message from Shinichi]
Since physics’s data shape and features are different from biology, analyzing and summarizing data was tough for me. I will utilize what I learned from the experience for my future works.
