Professor Masaki Kitajima graduated from Keio University School of Medicine in 1966. After receiving the M.D. degree in 1975, he spent two years at Harvard Medical School in the Massachusetts General Hospital as a fellow. He returned to Japan and was appointed professor at Keio University School of Medicine in 1989 and subsequently became Chairman of its Department of Surgery. He was Dean of the university from 2001 to 2007. He became Professor Emeritus in April 2007 and is currently the President of the International University of Health and Welfare at Mita Hospital in Tokyo.
During his exceptionally rich scientific research work he dealt with such topics as the impairment of the gastrointestinal tract after stress-effects, microcirculatory changes observed during the transplantation process, biochemical factors of metastasis formation, and the gene therapy of malignant tumours. His pioneer studies on the detection of early gastric and colon cancer, the role of sentinel-node mapping of these fields and the successful introduction of robotic surgery have meant a new chapter in the history of surgery. By connecting the lessons of modern pathological studies with minimally invasive surgical procedures, he has achieved excellent results in treating malignancies.
