About Chikashi Toyoshima

Chikashi Toyoshima is a distinguished biophysicist and professor at the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences at the University of Tokyo in Japan. He started his scientific career as an electron microscopist and worked on muscle filaments and ion channels. Drawing on his expertise in the fields of mathematics, physics, and biology, Toyoshima has revealed the atomic structures of biological samples that could never be studied before. His work on such biological structures has revolutionized how researchers are able to study the structure of proteins. In 1994, Toyoshima accepted a professorship at the University of Tokyo. In 2006 he was named the National Lecturer at the Biophysical Society’s 51st Annual Meeting, the Society’s highest honor.
