Dr. Kashiwagi grew up in Nagano, Japan, where he developed an early interest in science and was fascinated by living creatures, especially insects. He decided to go to medical school and obtained his MD degree at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan, in 1997. After finishing his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology and taking care of more than 1,000 childbirths, he started his research career at Keio University Graduate School of Medicine in Tokyo. Dr. Kashiwagi obtained his PhD in the field of biochemistry in 2004. Although he enjoyed practicing medicine, he was also interested in research and took the advice of his boss in Tokyo to come to the United States to do a postdoctoral fellowship. His postdoctoral training was in the Department of Radiation Oncology, Cardiovascular Research Center, and Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), studying tumor angiogenesis, nitric oxide biology, and immunology. In 2018, he joined the Department of Radiology at MGH and started working on the development of a new imaging technology to dissect the immune response in the context of cancer, allergy, and infectious diseases with the ultimate goal of translating the knowledge into clinical practice. His group’s current focus has been to establish safe, effective, simple, and affordable therapy for neurological disorders, infectious diseases, allergies, autoimmune diseases, and cancer using near-infrared laser technology. With his broad background in reactive oxygen species, immunology, bioimaging, and laser medicine, Dr. Kashiwagi is poised to create a synergy of interdisciplinary collaboration between laser technology and immunotherapy to save patients from these diseases worldwide.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
