Doctor: Naoki Iwasa

Hello, this is Naoki Iwasa from Hashima Animal Clinic.

Thank you for visiting our website.

I am affiliated with Hashima Animal Clinic as well as the Laboratory of Veterinary Internal Medicine at Gifu University, where I am conducting clinical research. This research is mainly focused on the circulatory organs and kidney-related research. I am particularly interested in Cystatin C, which is a kidney biomarker, and I have made many presentations and written many papers on this subject. I hope to carry on working as a veterinarian while also continuing with my clinical research and making new discoveries and verifications in the field of veterinary medicine. I also look forward to attending international academic meetings such as ECVIM and ACVIM, where I will be able to mix with veterinarians from around the world. Thank you for your support.
