Susumu Inoue



Dr. Susumu Inoue was born in Japan, and graduated from Okayama University School of Medicine. following that, he did his rotating internship at the US Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan. He completed his residency in pediatrics and fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology at the Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. Subsequently he did bench work researches initially investigating chromosomal abnormalities of leukemia, and later, bone marrow hematopoietic cell differentiation using the in vitro bone marrow culture technique. He was in Detroit as associate professor of pediatrics till 1987 when he moved to Flint, MI and developed pediatric hematology/Oncology division at Hurley Medical Center. He also became professor at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, and served there in the admission committee, and as a chair of the preclinical section, Neoplasia/hematopoiesis domain. Clinically he was extremely busy as an attending Hematologist/Oncologist at Hurley Medical Center. More recently he had departed from most of the clinical duties and he is putting more focus on clinical research particularly in sickle cell disease and child abuse as well as teaching MSU medical students and residents.
