経歴

I had my residency training in internal medicine in Tokyo, 1986-1988. From those days I was interested in working in Africa, which let me do DTMH in London, followed by a post-graduate clinical training in Harare Central Hospital, Zimbabwe, 1989 where I encountered my life work, AIDS. My master project on HIV viral load at LSHTM in 1990 was very successful that I was offered a job as a clinical research fellow at the Jefferiss Wing, St. Mary’s Hospital. My asset of multi-disciplinary human-network has been established when working in London, Oxford and West Africa for 8 years as well as in Tokyo at NIID for 3 years and in Thailand for JICA for 4 years.

教育活動

I am the course director of Master of Tropical Medicine (MTM) where I teach clinical tropical medicine, malaria and non-malaria febrile illness, STD and HIV/AIDS. I also facilitate the tropical infectious disease case discussion.

As a chief of NEKKEN training/education center, I also organize the three-month diploma course of tropical medicine.

研究活動

HIV research had been a core of my carrier before joining NEKKEN. It broadened my skills to understand a disease from multidisciplinary aspects such as behavioral, epidemiological, clinical science, molecular immunology and virology. Most of my work has derived from clinical-epidemiology settings such as cohort or case-control studies. I enjoy digging out clinical research questions by seeing patients and discussing with medical professionals. On joining to the current group of NEKKEN, my research topic has been broaden toward pneumonia in low, middle and high-income countries, non-malarial febrile illness such as typhus, leptospirosis. Now we have on-going studies in infectious disease wards in North Vietnam, the Philippines and Japan.

メッセージ

開発援助では,介入の度合いや支援の仕方など自分の位置取りを問われ,緊急人道援助では難しい即断を迫られますが,やればやるほど国際協力の形骸化や限界,理想と現実とのギャップに,そして,現場の人たちから学ぶことが多いと,気が付くのは自明です。自身のキャリアアップに囚われず,現地の人々と共にケイパビリティ(潜在能力)を拡げるためには,学ぶだけでなく,un-learning学び捨てることも必要です。教室で教え,学ぶ事と現場で実際に起こっている事,やっている事の間には常にズレがあります。自分たちの現場での失敗や反省を教員と学生が共有し合うことが,学生の資格や教員のポストのためでなく,援助を受ける人たちのためになると確信します。本コースが,教える,学ぶことの特権性を自覚し合い,複眼的思考をもつ自己批判精神の旺盛な人材へと常に生成する場の一つになればと思います。

経歴

I graduated from University College London with a BSc. (Biochemistry, First Class Hons) in 1996, followed by a postgraduate teaching qualification (1997), a Masters in Public Health Nutrition at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine [LSHTM] (1998) and finally a PhD, also at LSHTM (2003). My PhD comprised a clinical trial of low-dose maternal vitamin A supplementation to determine effects on immunity to malaria in pregnancy in Ghana. In 2002 I became a staff member at LSHTM within the MRC International Nutrition Group and worked on malaria and anemia in Gambian children. In 2007 I moved to be based in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, working mostly on sickle cell disease. In 2015 I was appointed as a Professor at School of Tropical Medicine & Global Health, Nagasaki University, where I am now based. I also hold a joint appointment at LSHTM.

教育活動

I co-organise courses in Epidemiology and Statistics in semesters 1 and 3 for the TMGH MSc courses. These courses are based on those provided by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine masters programmes and are taught by Nagasaki and visiting LSHTM research staff. I also organise a module on Nutrition for Global Health in Semester 3 and teach individual sessions on in other modules on effects of both under and over-nutrition, diagnosis and management of acute malnutrition, nutrition and infection, causes and effects of anaemia in the tropics, epidemiology and field-based research methodology

Previously at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UK I taught and managed units within the MSc in Public Health Nutrition and I have been a tutor on distance based learning MSc courses: “Nutrition and Infection” & “Study Design: writing a grant application.

研究活動

I am interested in how nutrition underpins human health and in particular in relation to interactions with infections, other conditions like sickle cell disease and maternal and child health. My research aims to provide an evidence base to support nutrition-based interventions to improve health outcomes in populations in low and middle income countries.
Current ongoing studies are summarized below:
Nutrition and TB
I am leading research on nutrition and diabetes in TB patients in the Philippines in both inpatient and outpatient populations in Metro Manila, Cebu and Negros Occidental. I collaborate with investigators from San Lazaro Hospital, Manila, the Nutrition Centre, Philippines and the National TB programme.
Malnutrition in children
In Nepal I am leading research assessing malnutrition in pediatric admissions and outpatient clinics (children of all ages). In Cambodia, we are investigating the determinants of malnutrition of young children within the NHAM birth cohort, with a focus on infections and the microbiome. In Burundi we are collaborating with Action Against Hunger to evaluate malnutrition diagnosis and referral within the integrated community case based management programme (iCCM).
Nutrition as a modulator of sickle cell disease
Within the Muhimbili Sickle Cohort in Tanzania, my previous research has focused on nutritional and genetic modulation of sickle cell disease (SCD).

メッセージ

I propose that nutrition is one of the most important modifiable environmental factors underlying health and disease. Along with infections such as malaria, nutrition has been one of the strongest selection pressures over our recent evolutionary history. This has significant implications in relation to the rapid changes in diet and lifestyle that are occurring globally. Under and over-nutrition are increasingly occurring within the same population groups and in both low and high-income countries.
Nutrition is essential to consider at individual and community/population levels in order to ensure that health interventions are optimally successful.
My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms by which nutritional factors affect health outcomes, with a focus on low- and middle-income country settings and encompassing infectious and non-infectious disease processes.

経歴

I graduated from the University of Tokyo (UT) in 1976 (BSc. in Health Sciences) , Then, I was in UT until I am 34 as a research student in the department of human ecology (1976-1978), a master course student (1978-1980), a PhD student (1980-1983), and a research associate (1983-1987). I joined to Nagasaki University in 1987, as an associate professor of public health at School of Medicine, then as a professor of community health at School of Allied Medical Sciences in 1999. From 2002, I moved to Nekken, Institute of Tropical Medicine as a professor at the Research Center for Tropical Infectious Diseases (RECTID). Between 2007 and 2013, I was in Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN), Kyoto, as a project leader of “The RIHN Ecohealth project: Environmental Change and Infectious Diseases in Tropical Asia. After the RIHN Ecohealth project, I joined again to Nagasaki University, being professor and dean of the graduate school of international health development, which is the precursor of this graduate school of tropical medicine and global health.

教育活動

Based on my back ground of human ecology, I will be teaching various aspects of bio-social approach to global health. Bio-medical science and epidemiology are very important part of global health. Yet, students need to acquire enough knowledge on wider bio-social context of each society which is shaping the health of the people, in order to contribute to the sustainable development goals of global health. Students need to understand people’s life, their environments, their society’s history, culture, social and political system, public health systems and so on. I will teach the following modules: Global Health in the autumn quarter, Health Promotion Ⅰand Ⅱ in the winter quarter. And I will serve as an organizer/coordinator for Health System and Policy Ⅰand Ⅱ, and Social Entrepreneurship.

研究活動

I have been studying human ecology of people living in various environments in Asia, Africa and South America. Based on intensive field work in rural communities, I studied demographic events (death, pregnancy, birth and in/out migration), time-allocation of human activities, their interaction with environment, food acquisition, diet, energy and nutrient intake, and energy output. Then, I started to study health ecology of parasitic diseases such as schistosomiasis haematobium in Kenya, malaria in Indonesia and Lao P.D.R. and liver fluke infection in Lao P.D.R. I have been interested in ecohealth/human ecology approaches (non-pharmaceutical approaches) to reduce the burden of these parasitic diseases and to accelerate health transition.

メッセージ

この世の中は矛盾と不条理に満ちています。もし,皆さんがアフリカや熱帯アジアの貧しい家庭に生まれたと想像してみてください。どうやって生き延び,病気から逃れ,何を食べて何をして生きていくことができるでしょうか。学校にも行けず字も読めなければ,どうやって社会からさげすまれずに生きていくことができるのでしょうか。「彼らは生きているだけで偉い,それに比べれば自分は恵まれた環境の中で何をしているのだろうか?」と思うことがグローバルヘルスの出発点だと思います。私たちは,学び考えることによって自分を有為な人材にし,持ち場ごとに自分の責務を果たしていくしかありません。そのために,熱帯医学・グローバルヘルス研究科を教員と学生が協力して教育,研究,実践を推進する意義のある場にしていきたいと考えています。

感染免疫学

研究活動

マラリアは、世界中で毎年3~5億人の罹患者と100万人近くの死亡者があるきわめて重要な感染症です。しかしながら、有効なワクチンは開発されておら ず、決定的な対策が困難な感染症です。 マラリアは、原虫(単細胞の寄生虫)による感染症ですから、寄生体に関する研究と共に、宿主サイドの感染防御に関する研究を進めることが予防(ワクチン開 発)や治療法開発のために極めて重要です。また、マラリアに伴う様々な症状(発熱、貧血、肝脾腫など)や重症化(脳マラリアなど)には免疫系が深く関わっ ています。一方で、マラリア原虫感染は宿主の免疫機構を抑制しエスケープすることも知られています。しかしながら、これらのメカニズムは十分に理解されて いません。

  • (1)宿主の感染防御については、自然免疫、獲得免疫(B細胞とT細胞)が主要な研究対象になります。私達の教室では、T細胞を中心にマラリア感染に伴う 免疫系の修飾、免疫記憶に関する研究を行っています。最近の成果としては、マラリア感染に伴い、新たな免疫抑制細胞が誘導されることを発見しました。これ らは基礎的な研究ですが、近い将来には有効なマラリアワクチン開発につなげようという大きな夢をもっています。
  • (2)長崎大学の先輩であるの下村脩先生により発見された蛍光蛋白green fluorescent protein (GFP)の開発や、顕微鏡技術の革新により、生きた動物の感染現場を直接目で見ることが可能になりました。マラリア原虫感染における防御免疫の現場を直 接見る蛍光生体イメージングの研究に取り組んでいます。マラリア肝細胞期においてCD8+T細胞が肝細胞に感染したマラリア原虫を排除する現場を直接観察 することに成功しました。マラリア感染における免疫記憶細胞や制御性細胞の動態や活性化、寄生体・宿主相互作用など生体イメージングの手法を用いて解明し ていきます。

メッセージ

免疫学を担当します。マラリア原虫感染を中心に感染免疫学,特にT細胞の機能制御と免疫記憶に関する基礎的な研究を行っています。熱帯感染症の多くは慢性感染症であり,ワクチンが開発されていません。慢性感染症は,そもそも自然感染で抵抗性を得にくい感染症ですので,ワクチン開発のためには越えなくてはならない壁がまだ多くあるのです。何が問題なのか,この対策をどのようにしたらよいか,皆さんと一緒に考えていきたいと思います。

経歴

Chris received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (USA) (2002), a Master of Applied Statistics with distinction from the University of Malaya (Malaysia) (2005), and a PhD in Health Science from the University of Tokyo (Japan) (2011) for research on statistical method to measure the relative performance of post-market treatments in the absence of suitable controls. Following completion of his PhD, he went on to hold a postdoctoral position at the National Institute for Environmental Studies (Japan) where he studied the health effects of ambient temperatures and air pollution in Japan. In 2013, he became a postdoctoral fellow under the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and expanded his work on environmental pollution and health to the developing countries in the tropics. He continued his work as an assistant professor at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University (Japan), from late 2015 until early 2018. From April 2018, he joined the School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health at the same university as an Associate Professor. He was a Rutherford Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (United Kingdom) between August 2018 to January 2019.

教育活動

Chris teaches biostatistics at the School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health at Nagasaki University, and previously, the School of International Health at the University of Tokyo. He has previously organized and taught undergraduate courses in statistics, actuarial mathematics, and quantitative analysis.

研究活動

Chris is interested in environmental epidemiology and the related statistical methods. His research focuses on the assessment of human health risk associated with atmospheric exposures such as air pollution, ambient temperatures, airborne pollen, and intercontinental dust events. He is currently leading a project to measure the health impacts of landscape fires that affect the air quality of many Southeast Asian cities. He is involved in a project that investigates the associations of fine particulate matter, its chemical constituents and sources with the lung function of asthma patients. He is also leading a study to examine the forward displacement of daily mortality attributable to air temperatures in tropical setting.

Given his extensive training in applied statistics, Chris is also interested in the application of statistics in a multidisciplinary context involving other health fields and looks forward to working with researchers from different backgrounds.

メッセージ

In the digital age where data are collected faster and greater in quantity, strong quantitative skills are important to allow one to extract useful information from data. Statistics is central to this process. As you begin your journey with us, there will be opportunities to gain knowledge in statistical inference and develop skills in data analysis and interpretation. You will also be exposed to the data-driven approaches in epidemiology. I look forward to meeting students and researchers interested in utilizing these skills to improve health.
