Biography: 

Dr. Matsui received his Ph.D. in Microbiology from Meiji Pharmaceutical University, Tokyo, Japan. He has been studying the role of colonization by Staphylococcus aureus in patients with atopic dermatitis from 1999. His previous studies demonstrated that cell wall components of S. aureus contributed to an increase in mast cells, Th2 cells and eosinophil numbers in the dermis of skin lesions of atopic dermatitis patients, and also they induced up-regulation of allergen specific IgE production and Th2 cells development. His current research interest focuses on regulation of Th1/Th2 cells development through Langerhans cells in order to cure allergic disease.
