Read Interview session with Kiyoshi Ariizumi

Biography :

Immune responses need to be tightly regulated, particularly in the skin where the ability to defend against infections and cancers should be balanced. This key process is heavily dependent on proper switching the differentiation program of myeloid cells between the immuno-stimulators and the immunosuppressors. One-sided differentiation causes hyperactivation or immunosuppression, leading to autoimmune diseases (e.g., psoriasis on the skin) or promoting skin cancer growth, respectively. We are studying molecular mechanisms through which myeloid cells (particularly, dendritic cells and macrophages) switch to the suppressors under the pathological conditions of psoriatic inflammation and melanoma, using mouse models (transgenic and gene-disrupted mice) and human clinical samples. We are also thinking about translational studies to make the results of basic research applicable to the development of new treatments for these skin diseases.

During the years 2004-2010, while chairing the Department of Dermatology, I mostly focused on residency training programs and as a team we developed logbooks for every resident in the faculty, started a feedback system for residents, which is still continuing with success.
