Dr. Nobuhiro SUZUKI received his M. S. (1985) in phytopathology and Ph. D (1989) in virology from Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan. Dr. SUZUKI currently serves as a full professor of the Institute of Plant Stress and Resources, formerly Institute of Plant Sciences and Bioresouces at Okayama University and as an Editor/Board member of Virus Research, Frontiers in Virology, Journal of General Plant Pathology, Virology Journal, Biology, Journal of Virology, and Virology. He has also been Guest Editors to PLoS Pathogens, PNAS, and mBio, and Board Members of Virology and Journal of Virology.

Suzuki Laboratory focuses on characterization of diverse viruses infecting phytopathogenic fungi and exploration of their interplays. Recent achievements include the discovery of a neo-virus lifestyle exhibited by a (+)ssRNA virus and an unrelated dsRNA virus in a plant pathogenic fungus. Prior to coming to Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, he was a visiting fellow of the Center for Agricultural Biotechnology at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute for four years (1997-2001) to study molecular biology of hypoviruses in the laboratory of Professor Donald L. Nuss. Before visiting UMBI, he served as an assistant professor and a lecturer of the Biotechnology Institute at the Akita Prefectural College of Agriculture for 11 years (1988-1998) where he conducted a project on molecular characterization of rice dwarf phytoreovirus, a member of the family Reoviridae. He received awards from the Japanese Phytopathological Society of Japan and Japanese Society for Virology for his outstanding achievements in plant virology.
