Dr Keiji Numata joined RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science as a Senior Scientist in 2010 to start up the Laboratory for Enzyme Research and also to investigate biosyntheses and material design of structural proteins, polypeptide and poly(amino acid). He has been leading this lab since 2012. One of their main goals is to develop the bioprocess to produce and design the biopolymers as structural materials.
