Abstract In this seminar, I will share my experiences accumulated over the years as a physician, researcher, and medical device developer in Japan and the United States, following my graduation from the Tohoku University in 2004. Clinically, I completed my initial training in Sendai, followed by residencies at Tohoku and Jichi Medical Universities, where I specialized in neurosurgery and neuroendovascular therapy. I currently serve as an attending physician in the interventional neuroradiology division at UCLA. My research began as a research fellow at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where I studied global cerebral ischemia in rats. Now, I am the Principal Investigator at UCLA, focusing on cerebral aneurysms and ischemic stroke. Additionally, I have been involved in the development of minimally invasive devices in both Japan and the U.S., and currently consult for over 20 companies. This seminar will explore the differences between the U.S. and Japan in these fields and share lessons learned from these experiences.
