Takuya Saito

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine
I am very honored to receive the APSR JRS Young Investigator Award at the APSR Congress 2021 in Kyoto.

I am a graduate student at Department of Respiratory Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine.
I have been conducting research on alveolar macrophages in COPD.

My presentation showed that Siglec-1 expression of macrophages in induced sputum of COPD patients correlates with the frequency of prospective exacerbations and that Siglec-1 negative alveolar macrophages in COPD patients may have inflammatory phenotypes.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I participate online this time, but I am looking forward to attending the APSR conference on-site.

Naoaki Watanabe

I'm a pulmonologist in the Division of Respiratory Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, The Jikei University School of Medicine (Tokyo, Japan). Now I pursue basic research in the Laboratory of Integrative Oncology, National Cancer Center Research Institute (Tokyo, Japan), where I focus on transcriptome analysis. I've always been fascinated with how transcriptome analysis can be used to explain the complexity of lung parenchymal and mesenchymal architecture and I believe that our understanding of the complexities will lead us to the elucidation of various respiratory diseases such as IPF, COPD, lung cancer in the future.
