His primary areas of study are Genetics, Retina, Gene, Molecular biology and Retinitis pigmentosa. His Retina research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Retinopathy, Transplantation and Anatomy. His Gene study deals with Macular degeneration intersecting with Locus, Hemicentin 1, Japanese population and Decreased Visual Acuity.
Makoto Tamai has included themes like Cell culture, Northern blot, Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor, Regulation of gene expression and Western blot in his Molecular biology study. Ophthalmology covers Makoto Tamai research in Retinitis pigmentosa. His Ophthalmology research focuses on subjects like Surgery, which are linked to Atrophy.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Retina, Ophthalmology, Retinal, Molecular biology and Genetics. His research integrates issues of Cell biology, Transplantation, Anatomy and Pathology in his study of Retina. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neurotrophic factors and Retinal ganglion.
His Ophthalmology research focuses on Retinopathy and how it relates to Eye disease, Diabetic retinopathy and Proliferative vitreoretinopathy. His Retinal research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cell culture, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His work on Genetics deals in particular with Gene, Retinitis pigmentosa, Mutation, Mutation and Exon.
Makoto Tamai spends much of his time researching Retina, Channelrhodopsin, Retinal, Cell biology and Retinal ganglion. Retinal pigment epithelium is the focus of his Retina research. His work deals with themes such as Gene, Transduction and Genetic enhancement, which intersect with Channelrhodopsin.
His Gene study is concerned with the field of Genetics as a whole. The various areas that Makoto Tamai examines in his Retinal study include Molecular biology, Neurotrophic factors, Toxicity and Anatomy. His Retinal ganglion study combines topics in areas such as Transgene, Anesthesia, Retinitis pigmentosa and Pathology.
Makoto Tamai mainly investigates Retina, Retinal, Channelrhodopsin, Cell biology and Pathology. The concepts of his Retina study are interwoven with issues in Anatomy, Neural crest, Viability assay, Cornea and Lens. His Retinal study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell culture, Lipofuscin, Molecular biology and Dithiothreitol.
His study in Channelrhodopsin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Retinal degeneration, Virology, Retinitis pigmentosa and Retinal ganglion. His Retinitis pigmentosa study is related to the wider topic of Ophthalmology. His Pathology study incorporates themes from Cell, Gene expression, Transduction and Transplantation.
