Chihaya Yamada is an assistant professor at the Laboratory of Enzymology in the Department of Biotechnology, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo located in Tokyo, Japan. I obtained Ph.D degree in Agriculture at The University of Tokyo in 2013. I contributed to structural analysis of lacto-N-biosidase (LnbX) from Bifidobacterium longum subsp. longum belonging to GH136 with Prof. Shinya Fushinobu and Prof. Takane Katayama . My reseach interests are new enzymes from human gut microbiota.
