    Tetsuro Kobayashi, DVM/PhD is an investigator at the Laboratory for Innate Immune Systems, RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences, Yokohama, Japan. His research focuses on crosstalk between epithelial cells, immune cells and microbiota in skin. He has investigated mechanisms by which epithelial homeostasis and microbiome balance is tuned by immune cells in steady state and how imbalanced microbiota leads to skin diseases, particularly atopic dermatitis. He currently extends his research area of focus to understand coordinated actions of epithelial cells and immune cells in chronic itch of atopic dermatitis. He graduated from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology and joined the Department of Dermatology at Keio University School of Medicine for a Ph.D. program where he investigated hair follicle stem cell biology. He did postdoctoral training in Dr. Keisuke Nagao’s laboratory at Keio University School of Medicine and at Dermatology Branch, NIH.
