Akiko Shinya
Neurologist, MD PhD student

After having finished medical residency at TMDU, I have joined its Neurology department and have devoted my working life to clinical treatment and management of patients with neurological diseases in the hospital frontline. Having been certified as a neurology clinician, I recently enrolled in the TMDU MD PhD course in Neurology for further studies of neurodegenerative diseases in the laboratory, in hopes of contributing to the understanding of and the cure for diseases that have been "uncurable" until now.
