NTT Research, a division of Japanese technology services company NTT, announced that it has appointed Dr. Tetsuhiko Teshima as a Research Scientist in its Medical and Health Informatics (MEI) Lab. Dr. Teshima has also joined the Technical University of Munich (TUM) Neuroelectronics Group as a Visiting Researcher and began his three-year appointment on March 1, 2020.

NTT Research and TUM entered into a joint research agreement last fall to explore implantable electronic systems to affect the future of patient care.

Dr. Teshima is an expert in microtechnologies and will be working full-time at TUM in the area of advanced neuroelectronics and biosensor technology. He has previously worked on a broad range of topics that overlap with the MEI Lab’s mission, including micro bio-nano interfaces, parasitology, soft matter, hierarchical self-assembly, thin-film manufacturing techniques, soft lithography, microfluidics, revolutionary tools for single-cell measurements, mechano-biology and three-dimensional synthetic tissue and organs

Prior to joining NTT Research, Dr. Teshima held positions at NTT’s Bio-medical Informatics Research Center, the National Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP), and NTT’s Basic Research Laboratories. He has also held a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science post-doctoral fellowship for three years at the Institute of Industrial Science. He holds an M.S. in Biology and Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology from the University of Tokyo.

In a press release, MEI Lab Director Hitonobu Tomoike stated, “Dr. Teshima is a top young scientist in Japan who has made a mark in various areas of micro technologies. I expect a good ‘chemical reaction’ between him and the brilliant scientists in Munich.”
