Outline Activities
On clinical research, I study on as many diseases in oral region as possible, especially oral cancers and oral mucosal lesions. On basic research, I immunologically study on molecular mechanisms of the development of salivary gland disease including Sjogren's syndrome and IgG4-related disease, host defense mechanisms against oral squamous cell carcinoma, molecular mechanisms of the development of oral lichen planus, and so on.
As educational activities, I study clinical and basic research with many post-graduate students, and have classes for students in the faculty to teach oral cancers, local anesthesia, tooth fracture and luxation, oral mucosal lesions, oral immunology, and so on.
As social activities, I have many lectures for general dentists and medical doctors to teach knowledge which I got in the university. Especially, I willing to enlighten xerostomia as a disease which dentists should take care, and established Dry Mouth Society in Japan, and have educational lectures twice a year for general dentists. I also act a member of Science Council of Japan, Vice-President of Japan Oral Medicine Organization, and Director of International Organization for Patient Safety. Furthermore, I act as President of Japanese Society of Oral Medicine and also a director of many Japanese associations and societies, and take active parts, for example, an involvement in the publication of Guideline of the Treatment for Oral Cancers and Sjögren’s Syndrome.

Educational Activities
As educational activities, I study clinical and basic research with many post-graduate students, and have classes for students in the faculty to teach oral mucosal lesions, oral autoimmune diseases, salivary gland diseases, sinusitis, tooth fracture and luxation, local anesthesia, oral immunology (allergy, transplantation immunology, autoimmunity, tumor immunology), and so on.
Other Educational Activities
  • 2009.03, As one of activities of Exchange Program with Pusan National University, I took my students to Pusan National University, stayed for 3 days, and kept the relationship on March. And then, I accepted students of Pusan National University and showed Kyushu University and Fukuoka city for 3 days on July..

Professional and Outreach Activities
I willing to enlighten xerostomia as a disease which dentists should take care, and have recently established Dry Mouth Society in Japan, and have egucational lectures twice a year for general dentists. I am also one of contributers for Japan Association for Dry mouth and Kyushu Association for Sjogren's syndrome..
