Title:  Disease Biomarker Discovery -HSP27 for Diagnostics and Therapeutics of Pancreatic Cancer

Dr. Kazuyuki Nakamura, Professor and Chairman in Department of Biochemistry and Functional Proteomics, Yamaguchi University Graduate School of Medicine, is serving for the promotion of human proteomics as, a Council member, a member of Education & Training (E&T) Committee and International Proteomics Tutorial Program (IPTP), a co-chair of Human Disease Glycomics Proteome Initiative (HGPI), an advisory member of Human Kidney and Urine Proteome Project (HKUPP) in Human Proteome Oragnisation (HUPO), an President and a member of Membrane Proteomics Initiative (MPI) in Asia and Oceania HUPO (AOHUPO), and the Past President of Japan HUPO (JHUPO) and Japanese Electrophoresis Society (JES).  He is active in E&T of young scientists in Asia and he organized a Joint Meeting of AOHUPO symposium and JES symposium for the Satellite Meeting of 20th IUBMB to promote E&T in Japan. He is interested in biomarker discovery for cancers such as HCV-related Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Pancreatic Cancer using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis combined with tandem mass spectrometry, and in the development of Cys-tag-Protein Chip for high through-put analyses of protein-protein interactions. His interest is shifting to Membrane Proteomics, Cancer Immunology and Immuno-Proteomics for the development of new diagnostic tools and non-invasive curative treatments of malignant tumors. He is also serving for the promotion of proteomics as an Associate Editor of Proteome Science, and an Editorial Board Member of Proteomics, Expert Review of Proteomics, and so on. His mission is to promote E&T of graduate students and young scientists being experts in the field of functional proteomics and clinical proteomics for understanding Molecular System of Life.
