Profile

Yuji Kamiya graduated from the Department of Agricultural Chemistry, the University of Tokyo in 1970, and obtained Ph. D. in agriculture from the University of Tokyo in 1975.
He joined the Pesticide Synthesis Laboratory 3 of RIKEN in 1975 and determined the chemical structure of the mating factors of basidiomycetes yeast,Rhodosporidium toruloides.
From 1980 to 1982 he studied on gibberellins biosynthesis at the Institute of Plant Physiology, University of Gttingen, as a research fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Since that time on he has continued to study gibberellins biosynthesis and its regulation.
He was appointed as the Head of the Laboratory for Plant Hormone Function of the RKEN Frontier Research Program from 1991 to 1998.
He contributed to the cloning of major genes related to gibberellin biosynthesis.
In 2000, he joined the Plant Science Center as the Head of the Laboratory of Cellular Growth Development and in October 2000 he was promoted to the position of Group Director, Growth Physiology Group.
He was the Group Director of Plant Growth Regulation Research Group from 2000 to March 2013. He is currently Coordinator of RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science(CSRS) and staff of Global Relations & Research Coordination Office (April 2013-).
