Shoichiro Ozaki, The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research. Research Chemist, Japan

Ozaki’s primary contribution is to achieve the first total synthesis of optically active myo-inositol trisphosphate, which has proved invaluable in providing a ready supply of this messenger and a wide range of other inositol phosphates and lipids for subsequent physiological studies. Ozaki discovered DAB: regulator of Ca2+ release, anti-aging reagents which co-working with anti-aging gene: method to protect global warming and many new synthetic methods and reagents.He is now proposing best way to protect from global warming. His method is promotion of CO2 assimilation by effective use of NOx and Drainage nitrogen, phosphorous.

Discovered the dynamics of hetrochromatin silencing status as a cause to cell death and the heterogeneity aging in yeast. Developed and validated a fluorescence reporter to monitor heterochromatin silencing status, Developed an automated program for cell tracking and fluorescence quantification, Developed and validated microfluidics to efficiently and robustly retain yeast cells for a whole lifespan Organize large sets of microscopic image data and use quantitative method to understand data.
