Sugimoto, Naoki
Professor Naoki Sugimoto received his Ph.D. degree from Kyoto University, Japan in 1985. After postdoctoral and research associate works at University of Rochester, NY, USA, he joined Konan University, Japan as an assistant professor in 1988. He is promoted as an associate professor in 1991, and then he becomes a full professor since 1994. From 2003, he is a director of Frontier Institute for Biomolecular Engineering Research (FIBER) at Konan University. He has published more than 400 scientific papers and books. He has received specific awards inside and outside of Japan. He is also member of the Editorial Board of the Nucleic Acids Research (~2007) and Scientific Reports (~2015). Now he is President of the Japan Society of Nucleic Acids Chemistry.
