Purpose of Research

The general goal of our lab is to culture and/or organization of stem and organ-derived cells in various scales for regenerative medicine and cell-based assays. Chemical engineering methodologies and point of view serve as the basis in achieving these goals, because it optimize mass transfers in 3D cell-based tissues or best integrate basic biology, medicine and engineering.

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


Chemical engineering-based applications of latest knowledge of biology and medicine
