Biography

Tatsuru Masuda was born in Shiga, Japan in 1965. He began his academic career as an undergraduate student at Kobe University. He received the B.S. degree in Agriculture in 1988 the M.S. degree in Agriculture in 1990 from Kobe University. He continued his study as a Ph.D. course graduate student at Kyoto University. In 1990, he became a Research Associate of Tokyo Institute of Technology, where he received his Ph.D. degree in Science in 1991. Later, he became an Assistant Professor. He also spent one and half year as a Visiting Professor of University of California, Berkeley. In 2004, he became an Associate Professor of the University of Tokyo.

Research Interest

Prof. Masuda's research centers the regulation of Plant Genetics, photosynthetic tetrapyrrole pigments, such as chlorophylls and hemes. Because of their unique properties on photosynthesis and respiration, the strict regulation of tetrapyrrole biosynthesis in plant cells is the heart of the chloroplast biogenesis. By taking biochemical and molecular biological approaches, he discovered the existence of coordinated transcriptional system of photosynthesis-related genes that are essential for the assembly of functional photosynthetic apparatus. By modulating this transcriptional system, he established a technology to produce functional chloroplasts even in non-photosynthetic plant tissues. He also developed new methodology for extremely sensitive heme detection, which now became a standard assay in most organisms. With this method, he is studying novel aspect of heme metabolism in plant cells.
