What are you looking forward to at WAC 2015?
"I have been to Seoul many times upon invitation by Korean people working for allergic diseases. Every time, I was impressed by their hearty hospitality."

What’s hot about the topic you are speaking on (Hypothesis-Generating Studies and Allergy)?
"We have been working on many genomic or epidemiological studies which can generate a new hypothesis. I would like to focus on studies related to innate cytokines and epidermal barrier, and how we found such hypotheses."
