Atsuki Nakagami (Graduate School of Science and Engineering) Receives Outstanding Presentation Award at Cyclodextrin Symposium

Updated Oct. 13, 2017
On August 31 and September 1, 2017, the 34th Annual Meeting of the Cyclodextrin Symposium, Japan was held at Aichi Gakuin University in Nagoya City. At the event, Atsuki Nakagami (Major of Applied Chemistry, Graduate School of Science and Engineering) received the Outstanding Presentation Award.

Nakagami conducted a study about the intracellular behavior of cyclodextrin by chemically modifying with a cell-penetrating peptide and a fluorescent dye for visualization. He also performed detailed experiments using a confocal laser microscope to determine how cyclodextrin is localized in cells and whether the cyclodextrin in cells contains chemical compounds.
Regarding this research, Nakagami gave a ten-minute oral presentation and a five-minute Q&A session at the symposium, which was highly commended for the award.

This research project was carried out with the support of the MEXT-supported Program for the Strategic Research Foundation at Private Universities, ‘Formation of a development base of molecular chemistry technologies for freely manipulating cells’ (2015-2019, representative: Professor Masahito Kodera).


Title of Presentation
‘Observation of supramolecular chemistry in cells using transmembrane type cyclodextrin’


Presenter
Atsushi Nakagami (second year, Master’s Program in Applied Chemistry, Graduate School of Science and Engineering; graduated from the Department of Molecular Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Science and Engineering)
