Tissue Engineering based on Mechanoengineering

We are trying to establish regenerative medical engineering for regenerating living tissues in vitro, synthesizing mechanical engineering, material science and cellular/ molecular biology. Additionally, we are also trying to elucidate unknown mechanism how living cells sense physical stimulations such as tensile stress, shear stress and hydrostatic pressure at molecular levels.

Subjects of Reseach

  • Regenerative engineering of vascular blood vessel and cartilage tissue under mechanical stress
  • 3D organ design with/without scaffolds
  • Rapid prototyping technology for 3D scaffold design
  • Real-time imaging of blood vessels under physiolosical stimulations
