Development of Biomaterial, Intellignet Material, and Smart Drug Carrier based on Polymer Science

In order to treat intractable diseases, as well as to engineer and regenerate tissues, it is essential to develop efficient nano-delivery systems, which enable diagnosis and treatment of disordered tissues in the body by delivering appropriate amounts of therapeutic biomolecules at the targeted sites with appropriate timing. We are developing biocompatible nanocarriers based on the self-assembly of precisely designed synthetic polymers, which can treat diseases at the cellular level, aiming for clinical application

Subjects of Reseach

  • Development of supramolecular structures based on precise synthetic polymers
  • Development of nano structural devices for active targetable cancer therapy
  • Development of nano structural devices for gene therapy
  • Development of light or heat responsive pinpoint drug delivery system
  • Development of nanobiointerface for regenerative medicine
