Development of Highly Functional Medical Devices by Design of Biointerface

The biointerface is created when a biomolecule (e.g., DNA, RNA, protein, antibody), and membranes, viruses, or cells touches solid surfaces such as inorganic, synthetic polymer, or bio-inspired materials. The aim of our study on biointerface science is to understand and control the behavior of such biological objects on the surfaces. We are developing the highly functional medical devices for artificial organ, for medical diagnosis, for regeneration medicine by design of the biointerface.

Subjects of Reseach

  • Development of functional biointerface based on bioinspired materials
  • Development of high sensitive immunoassay chip by use of polymer nanofiber or particles
  • Creation of phase separated nanodomeine structure by block copolymers to control cell adhesion
  • Development analytical tool to investigate the cell-materials interaction
