Head of the Department of Bioengineering
Development of innovative medical systems through elucidation and manipulation of the interactions of materials and systems with living bodies

Basic philosophy
In a society where the population ages and the birth rate declines with the sustainable development being longed for, Department of Bioengineering aims to contribute to the promotion of health and well-being of the humanity. To achieve this goal, we promote the education and research of bioengineering, which is the multidisciplinary academic field integrating the existing disciplines of engineering and those of life sciences at their interface. The key features of bioengineering are to establish its theoretical basis by understanding and clarifying the interactions of materials and systems with living bodies, and to develop fundamental technologies that control these interactions based on the theory. The control of the interactions with living bodies renders materials and systems far more useful and compatible, promising the birth of groundbreaking medical technologies.
