3D human organ engineering for implantation and cell-based assay —Optimization of 3D organization and mass transfer—

The general goal of our lab is to optimize 3D cellular organization and good mass transfer in various scales in vitro based on chemical engineering for for regenerative medicine and cell-based assays. We have also been trying to best integrate knowledge and technologies from various disciplines in a well-balanced manner to attain that goal.

Subjects of Reseach

  • Process development for mass production and differentiation of stem cells
  • In vitro organization and growth of implantable liver and pancreas beta-cell tissues
  • Development of advanced cell-based assays and their applications to efficacy/hazard evaluations
  • Development of advanced biosensing devices using carbon nanofibers
