Dr Kotaro Chihara
Kotaro Chihara obtained his PhD in science and engineering at the Waseda University (Japan) in March 2020. He initially joined the Vogel lab for an internship from 2017 to 2018. During this time, he worked on the association of RNA-binding proteins with small noncoding RNAs in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and later on dynamics in biofilm formation. He then joined the Vogel lab in 2020 as a postdoc and is currently exploring strategies to discover novel RNA-binding proteins.
