Tetsuhiro Kudoh obtained the Ph.D. degree at Osaka University (March 1996), studying the roles of a tumor suppressor gene in cell cycle regulation. During Kudoh's postdoctoral studies, Kudoh has been working on zebrafish embryology mainly focusing on neural induction and neural patterning regulated by key signalling pathways such as Fgf, Bmp, Wnt, and retinoic acid. Since 2006, Kudoh has been a Lecturer in the Biosciences Department at the University of Exeter, where Kudoh expanded the research area to developmental biology in a variety of fish and aquatic invertebrate species including zebrafish, mangrove killifish, rainbow trout, limpet, and pond snail. By using these model species, Kudoh asks several questions related to neural induction and patterning, other early developmental processes and how different environmental changes affect the development of embryos.
