Mitsuhiro Endoh received his Ph.D. in Science in 2003 from Department of Biological Science, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University, studying the molecular mechanisms that govern mouse embryonic hematopoiesis under the direction of Professor Shin-ichi Nishikawa. He transferred to Dr. Haruhiko Koseki's lab at RIKEN Research Center for Allergy and Immunology (currently reorganized as RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences) for post-doctorate studies and pursued studies to elucidate the role of epigenetic mechanisms in pluripotent stem cell maintenance and differentiation. He moved to Research Institute for Radiation Biology and Medicine in Hiroshima University in 2014 as a project associate professor. He then moved to Professor Toshio Suda's lab as a senior research scientist in the Cancer Science Institute, National University of Singapore in 2016. His current research interest lies in the role of cellular stress response machineries in hematopoietic stem cell development and maintenance.
