Then, I researched about cancer stem cells at Medicine and Biosystemic Science, Kyushu University Graduate School of Medical Science.
I got Diplomate, Subspeciality Board of Medical Oncology in 2012, and worked as a chief resident National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo. At National Cancer Center Hospital, I researched about esophageal cancer chemotherapy mainly.
Then, I joined and worked at the department of Gastrointestinal and Clinical Oncology Division of Kyushu Cancer Center Hospital from 2013 to 2015. From 2015 to 2017, I was a head of Oncology division of Miyazaki Prefectural Miyazaki Hospital, and a main and leading member of Kyushu Medical Oncology Group and Kyushu-Yamaguchi Total Oncology Group, respectively. Now in 2018, I work in Karatsu Higashi-matsuura Medical Association Center as a doctor of internal medicine.

Research Interest: Potential Therapeutic Applications of Arteether, a Semi-Synthetized Derivative of Artemisinin on a Murine Model of Breast Cancer. As a Result, I Have Got Some Experience Atan Area of Tumor Immunology/Immunotherapynamed "Chemoimmunotherapy". Chemoimmunotherapy is an Approach for the Treatment of Cancers in Whichthe Focus is to enhance the Efficacy of chemotherapeutic Agents by Concomitant Application of Compounds with Immunomodulatory Properties. Besides my Thesis Work, I Managed to Do a Course in Cellular Immunology with Professor Hassan, One of the Well-Knownimmunologists in Iran, so that i could also Work on Cellular Immunology Aspects of Tumors. Moreover, Considering the Reported Associations between Molecular Players such as CTLA-4, PDL-1 and also Different Micrornas in Tumor Progression, i am Currently Planning to further Study these Associations in order to improve the Efficacy of Tumor Immunotherapy
