Welcome to our new Associate Editor: Hideko Nagasawa

We are delighted to welcome Professor Hideko Nagasawa to the RSC Advances team this month!

Hideko Nagasawa


Dr Hideko Nagasawa is a Professor in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry at Gifu Pharmaceutical University, where she heads the Laboratory of Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry. She completed her PhD at Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kyoto University. Her research mainly focuses on drug discovery and chemical biology targeting the tumor microenvironment (TME). Projects pursued in her laboratory include the development of selective cancer therapies in TMEs of hypoxia and nutrient deprivation, and the creation of unique functional molecules such as fluorescent probes and caged compounds for the study of diverse cellular stresses.

Nagasawa says, “I am excited to join RSC Advances as an Associate Editor and look forward to contributing to the field of Chemical Biology and Medicinal”.
