In 2011, 357,305 people died from cancer in Japan.(*1) Out of this number, approximately 50,000 people died from gastric cancer窶杯he second commonest type of cancer in Japan. However, gastric cancer is very treatable if detected at an early stage, which is why regular checkups for cancer should be encouraged. It has also been found that Helicobacter pylori treatment and appropriate follow-up using an endoscope can reduce gastric cancer development. This makes it even more important to increase the number of people receiving gastric cancer screening.

Offering new value to society through healthcare product development is my chief motivation as a researcher. As long as I am involved in product development, I would like to develop equipment that contributes to society and changes the world for the better. That is my long-term hope as a developer.
