I had a valuable experience at Juntendo. First, I chose plasmapheresis (plasma exchange therapy) as my research theme and conducted experiments for many years. As a result, the plasmapheresis center was established in December 1984, the first and only in Japan. In the meantime, two devices (SELESORB and CELLSORBA) were developed. Second, I started working at Juntendo Tokyo Koto Geriatric Medical Center 11 years ago. I have managed the center since then and was inaugurated as director for 3 years.
