Yukio Yoneda


I am now a Professor Emeritus in Kanazawa University, where I used to work as a Chairman Professor of Pharmacology for 16 years since 1999. I have been a Chairman of the Laboratory of Molecular Pharmacology at the Kanazawa University Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology from 1999 to 2015, and the Head of the Division of Life Sciences in the Graduate School for 4 consecutive years from 2004 to 2008.

I graduated from the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Osaka University in 1972 and from the Postgraduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Osaka University in 1975. I was appointed as a Research Associate in Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine in 1975 and as an Assistant Professor in 1981. I obtained my Doctorate in Kyoto Prefectural Medicine in 1979. In 1984, I moved to the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in Setsunan University as an Associate Professor of Pharmacology. I was then appointed as a Professor of Pharmacology in 1997. I then moved to Kanazawa University Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences as a Chairman Professor of Pharmacology in 1999. 

I have been serving as an Associate Editor in Neurochemistry International, Neurochemical Research and Journal of Neuroscience Research, in addition to the Editorial Board in several international scientific journals. These include Life Sciences, Current Neurovascular Research, Histology and Histopathology, Current Topics in Pharmacology etc. I also served as an Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Pharmacological Sciences for 4 years from 2008 to 2012.

My research interests have been lying on pharmacological profiling of amino acid signaling in neuronal and non-neuronal cells using molecular biological techniques. I have been trying to bring my research goals to a unique hybridization between cell features in the brain and bone architectures. I have been continuing to explore a pioneering novel research field on the similarity and homology of signal communication mechanisms in brain and bone cells. As a return of laboratory experimental results obtained during 40 years of research on amino acid signaling to the community, I am nowadays attempting to develop several dietary supplements and nutraceuticals beneficial for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of different diseases, besides the ongoing bench work, with colleagues from the industrial community.

I have conferred 55 postgraduate students a Ph.D. as the Chairman of the Laboratory of Molecular Pharmacology at Kanazawa University Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology since 1999. Twenty eight out of 55 former PhD students are now working as Professor, Associate Professor and Assistant Professor in different universities in Japan since then. As of September 29, 2016, my publications include 324 original research papers, 76 review articles and 35 book chapters so far.

I was honored with The Pharmaceutical Society of Japan Award for Young Scientists in 1993, The Science Award, Miyata Senji Foundation for Promotion of Sciences in 1999, The Science Award, Japan Society for Neuropsychopharmacology in 2000, and The Pharmaceutical Society of Japan Award in 2014. I have been on the Board of Trustees in several domestic and international scientific societies, such as Japanese Society for Pharmacology, Japan Society for Neuropsychopharmacology and Japanese Society for Neurochemistry, in addition to Asian Pacific Society for Neurochemistry. I served as Secretary General in the APSN from 2010 to 2014.

Description of the Special Issue: Recent years, active promotion of cooperation among industry, academia, and government are performed for development of drugs and therapeutics. Basic researches in academia are fundamentals all of them and academic seeds play important and critical roles in novel developments. Academic seeds should be widely known to promote the cooperation for drug development. In this special issue, basic researches in academia using every target from prokaryotic to eukaryotic organisms are demonstrated. Moreover, in mammals, all organs, tissues, and cells in whole body are targeted for research; and drugs already used for therapy in one disease could be a novel candidate for therapy in other diseases.

Description of the Special Issue: Health expenditure is an expense that citizens of each country have spent on insurance and medical care in a year. This includes public expenditure and personal expenditure. Although the average lifespan of human beings has increased markedly, people suffer from some serious diseases for about 10 years before they die. Therefore, how to improve healthy life expectancy is one of the major concerns of each country. In recent years, as an attempt to alleviate the financial burden of health expenditure, improvement of health life expectancy by self-medication has attracted attention. In this special issue, we will introduce the systemic efficacy effects of eucommia leaf extract, which is handled as food, not medicine, in Japan, China and Korea. And then, we would like to study the possibility of food self-medication. Additionally, we would like to make proposal for reconsidering herbal foods in the near future.
