As my brief CV shows, I have engaged in clinical works as an urologist for more than 20 years. Meanwhile, I have been cherishing an interest in germ cells personally and as an urologist. Thus, during this 20 several years, I kept studying germ cells as my life-long work. It was not an easy way to come but I was able to enjoy it luckily. Among others, the two and a half years spent in Dr. Brinsterfs lab is such a wonderful experience like a treasure in life. Having my own lab, I sincerely hope students here to experience the hardship as well as joy of doing research by themselves.
