Welcome to the Ishihara Lab!
The Ishihara Group focuses on new reaction development, enantioselective reaction, and natural product synthesis.

October 2018
Dr. Keita Komine came back to join our group as an assistant professor.

January 2018
Dr. Hayato Fukuda joined our group as an associate professor.
