Makoto T Hayashi, Ph.D. (IFOM Group Leader)

Makoto earned his B.S., M.S., and his Ph.D. from Osaka University under the supervision of Dr. Hisao Masukata. During this period, he studied the mechanism of DNA replication in fission yeast. In 2009, he moved to the Salk Insitute for Biological Studies to start new projects in the telomere field using the human cell culture model. After a successful postdoctoral period in Dr. Jan Karlseder's laboratory, Makoto then moved back to Japan and became the Hakubi program-specific assistant professor at Kyoto University in 2015. He was warmly hosted by Dr. Fuyuki Ishikawa laboratory and performed his own projects. He has now launched his own laboratory in 2020 as a  Group leader at IFOM-KU International Joint Research Laboratory. Makoto is currently employed by the IFOM, the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology, and his lab is located at the Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University.
