Shuichi Shimma was born in Saitama, Japan, in 1978. He received the physics degree (high-energy physics experiment, i.e., LHC ATLAS experiment) in the University of Tsukuba and the Ph.D. degree in physiology (imaging mass spectrometry of hippocampus) from the Graduate University for Advanced Study in 2007. Since 2007, Shimma has studied instrumental development of mass spectrometer in the mass spectrometry group in the Osaka University. In 2007, he was a Research Fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). From 2008 to 2009, Shimma was a Researcher of Osaka University. Presently, he is an Assistant Professor in Osaka University. He is mainly interested in the development of mass spectrometer (especially miniaturized multiturn time-of-flight mass spectrometer; MULTUM-S), application of MULTUM-S, and imaging mass spectrometry. In 2011, he was a Recipient of the Young Research Award of the Mass Spectrometry Society of Japan. He is an Editor of the Journal of Mass Spectrometry Society of Japan.
