Here is some information I received about developmental biologists in Tohoku University, Sendai, which was the city closest to the epicenter of the earthquake. > Dr. (Koji) Tamura, Dr. (Harukazu) Nakamura, Dr. Funahashi, Dr. (Toshihiko) Ogura, Dr. (Noriko) Osumi, and Dr. (Asako) Sugimoto and their lab members are fine, although their laba are a mess.
