Kazuhisa Nishizawa serves as a Professor at the Teikyo University School of Medical Technology, Japan. After graduating from the University of Tokyo School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan, and being qualified as a medical doctor (Japan) in 1989, he started the research at the Division of Medicine, Department of Neurobiology, Institute of Brain Research, University of Tokyo Graduate School, and he received the Ph.D. degree (medicine and physiology) in 1994. Although his qualification is medical, his current research focuses on computational biochemistry: biologically relevant processes of interactions between lipid membrane and proteins, ion channel dynamics, transporter dynamics, membrane fusion (viral and intracellular), and other pathological processes using molecular dynamics simulations (2003 onward). Prior to these analyses, he conducted studies in molecular evolutionary genetics using numerical simulations (from 1998 to 2002). In addition, he has wet-laboratory experiences in molecular biology and immunobiology (from 1993 to 2000). Since April 2010, he has been acting as an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Biophysical Chemistry (JBPC). Having taught in many classes of biochemistry and clinical chemistry, he has broad interests in medical science.
