    • Staff Researcher, Department of Physiology, Kanazawa University
        Dr Kazuaki Yoshioka is a staff researcher at Department of Physiology (Prof. Yoh Takuwa's Lab.), Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Science, in Japan.

        Dr Kazuaki Yoshioka did his PhD at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology in the lab of Prof. Hideaki Matsuoka. Further, he undertook a postdoctoral researcher role at Bioanalytical Systems Inc. (BASi) in the USA; he then moved for a second postdoctoral researcher position at Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science. Currently, Dr Yoshioka research focus is in the field of vesicle trafficking.

        Dr Yoshioka aims to understand the roles of PI3 kinases in vesicle trafficking, as well as their importance in normal homeostasis and disease. Dr Yoshioka, has an outstanding publication track record, with an H-index of 27 given from 57 publications in the web of science that were cited 1862 times.

        Following Dr Yoshioka interesting work on vesicle trafficking, we wanted to understand what motivates his vesicle trafficking research and what are the challenges that he needs to overcome to be able to answer his research questions. Here, we present an interview on Dr. Yoshioka's recent challenges and discoveries.

        Membrane trafficking, i.e. endocytic/exocytic, endo-lysosomal and autophagic, pathways are well studied, this field has grown rapidly over the last decade. Recently a “new era of membrane trafficking diseases” as emerged and de-regulation of vesicle trafficking pathways was shown to be related to syndromes such as: Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and metabolic syndromes like type2-diabetes.

        Intracellular vesicles (e.g. endosomes and lysosomes) with sizes of a few hundred nanometres cannot be resolved by conventional confocal microscopy. Super-resolution microscopy techniques like PALM and STORM are slower than conventional live-imaging technologies and /or require high laser power, rendering these approaches unsuitable for super-resolved live imaging.

        We will present actual membrane trafficking events captured using Andor’s Super-Resolution Radial Fluctuation (SRRF-stream) implemented via the highly sensitive iXon camera. Andor´s imaging technology offered new insights on the role of PI3-kinase in clathrin-mediated pinocytosis. Understanding this fundamental mechanism of vesicle trafficking could have implications for many diseases and might offer new therapeutic targets.
        Learning Objectives:
        • Identify the difficulties in vesicle imaging.
        • Discover how to image sub-resolution vesicle trafficking events.
        • Discuss the role of Pi3-kinase in vesicle endocytosis.
        • Use new tools to analyse vesicle trafficking and interaction in 3D
