Yasushi Ishihama is a professor of Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kyoto University. He has been working in the field of proteomics for 20 years. He has made contributions to this field especially by developing the basic technologies as well as by applying these tools to biology. His group also established ‘one-shot’ proteomics by ultrahigh resolution monolithic silica columns to uncover proteome on a microarray scale. He is also interested in comprehensive analysis of cellular signaling network using experimental and computational approaches. He has published over 180 papers, cited over 20100 times. He received the Research Award from the Mass Spectrometry Society of Japan (2011), the Award of Japanese Proteomics Society (2013) and the Award of the Society for Chromatographic Sciences (2018). He is currently a president of Japanese Proteomics Society, a vice president of the Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry and an executive council of AOHUPO.
