Abstract

Kunihiko Suzuki is a neurologist by training whose research accomplishments range widely from basic research in brain lipids, their metabolism to genetic disorders involving the nervous system. Among them are identification of the enzymatic defect, the pathogenetic mechanism, and animal models of Krabbe's globoid cell leukodystrophy, the chemical and molecular pathologies of many glycosphingolipidoses, discovery of the abnormal accumulation of very long chain fatty acids in adrenoleukodystrophy, and elucidation of the complex metabolic interrelationship among sphingolipids with extensive use of the gene targeting technology. This reflections and perspectives highlight his accomplishments briefly.
