​ We are always looking forward to working together, helping each other, and growing together. We have two bases, the Institute for Advanced Biosciences at Keio University (Tsuruoka, Yamagata, Japan) and the University of Cincinnati (Ohio, USA), which are connected live by various communication tools, and we are developing dynamic research utilizing the strengths of each location by going back and forth between them.You can participate in a variety of ways, including enrolling in graduate school or postdoctoral research at Keio University in Japan. You can also enroll in graduate school or join as a postdoc in the USA at the University of Cincinnati. Our research activities are guided by the following basic principles.Please feel free to contact us through the contact form or directly to the Principal Investigator, Dr. Sasaki, if our GTP disciplines resonate with you. Please start the subject line with GTP-GEEKS.

Mission and Approach of Sasaki Lab

​ We strive to maximize the power of our individual members and work together to understand the principles of life and contribute to a more prosperous future for humanity and the world.
