2nd Workshop on Plasma Bio Consortium held

Display Page for Printing Update date: Updated on September 20, 2019

August 23, 2019 Plasma bioconsortium workshop (@ Kyushu University Umade Campus) held

In order to expand the base of plasma biology and deepen mutual understanding between life science researchers and plasma science researchers, we held a “Plasma Bio Consortium” workshop at the Ude Campus of Kyushu University.

In this workshop, in addition to the teachers active at the forefront of plasma bioresearch, Dr. Makoto Arita who leads the world's lipid biology and Dr. Hitoshi Sugawara, the leading plant hormone researcher A total of 35 participants, including Lecturer and researchers belonging to organizations other than consortium members, participated in lectures and lively exchanges of opinions with the latest research in plasma biotechnology and the latest knowledge in life science. Was done.

Mr. Tanaka

Prof. ItoMr. Koga

After discussing various therapeutic effects of low-temperature atmospheric pressure plasma irradiation, such as bactericidal and sterilizing effects, wound healing, and antitumor effects, were explained by Associate Professor Hiromasa Tanaka, Research Center for Low Temperature Plasma Science, Nagoya University As a guideline for elucidating the complete molecular mechanism of such therapeutic effects, it was proposed to study at various levels from the molecular level to the individual level.

Meijo University of Science and Engineering Department Plasma Science Research Center Masafumi Ito Professor in, the development of application technology to the agriculture field of plasma irradiation, in addition to the bactericidal effect that has been known for a long time, both of the growth-promoting effect and sterilization of crops He also introduced that beneficial effects such as increasing the efficiency of biomass use are being discovered.

Kyushu University Graduate School of Systems and Information Science /National Institutes of Natural Sciences Center for Novel Science Initiatives (CNSI), Kazunori Koga Professor discusses factors that may affect the reproducibility of experimental results from atmospheric low-temperature plasma irradiation. I was introduced. In addition, he introduced his efforts to create guidelines for standardization of plasma generators, such as creating a composition table of typical products produced by plasma irradiation, such as reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species.

Arita-senseiMr. Sugawara

Keio University pharmaceutical Department left the company physiological Chemistry / Institute of Physical and Chemical Research of Life and Medical Sciences Research Center, Makoto Arita Professor in, while We introduce state-of-the-art lipid research, and the possibility of involvement of the phenomenon and the lipids by plasma irradiation, the molecular As a means of elucidating the mechanism, we also discussed the applicability of a method that can comprehensively search for various lipid metabolites by “non-target analysis”.

Professor Hitoshi Sugawara, Graduate School of Bioagricultural Sciences, Nagoya University, gave a lecture on the role of cytokinin, a plant hormone, in controlling growth. In addition, we discussed the effects of plasma irradiation on the growth of plants in association with your own research, and suggested the importance of investigating the effects on plant hormones in elucidating the mechanism of this phenomenon.


In this workshop, there were many opinions especially on the reproducibility of the plasma irradiation effect. This is because collaborative research inside and outside the consortium has become more active, life science researchers are entering the field of plasma biotechnology, the base of the field is expanding, and the difficulty of handling plasma It seems that it is showing. There are many factors that can influence the reproducibility of experimental results in plasma bioresearch. How to quantitatively evaluate the biological effects of plasma irradiation and how to standardize the method fairly Will continue to be the focus of discussion. In addition, it seems that cutting-edge life science research and technologies, such as those lectured by Prof. Arita and Prof. Sugawara, will contribute to this standardization. We will continue to hold workshops, provide opportunities to study cutting-edge life science research, and develop the plasma bio field as an academic field through free discussions between plasma and life science researchers. I will contribute.
