Dr. Takashi Tsukamoto will be sharing his insights into the challenges and opportunities in drug discovery based on a wealth of professional experience. A Ph.D. graduate from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, he pursued postdoctoral studies in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Michigan and went on to do research for organizations including Guilford Pharmaceuticals, MGI Pharma, and the Eisai Research Institute.

In addition to Dr. Tsukamoto’s research, he’s also served as the Chair of the Maryland Section of the American Chemical Society, as the Editor-in-Chief of the Chesapeake Chemist, and even as a mentor to academically-struggling high school students through the Incentive Mentoring Program.

Currently, at the Johns Hopkins Drug Discovery Program, Dr. Tsukamoto is the leader of a team of medicinal chemists involved in the design and synthesis of small molecules of therapeutic significance in various projects.
