Development of Multifunctional Nanodevices based on Functional Biomaterials for Safe and Effective Diagnosis and Therapies



Purpose of Research

For effective treatment of intractable diseases, drugs or genes need to be delivered to the aimed sites inside the body. Thus, it is essential to develop systems that performs diagnosis and treatments required when and where they are needed. By creating biocompatible multifunctional nanodevices based on the self-assembly of synthetic polymers, we are developing system capable of these functions.

Subjects of Reseach

Polymeric micelles as drug delivery systems of anticancer drugs
Tumor imaging and diagnosis
Effect of cancer biology on nanomedicine


Nano-assembled structures toward safe and effective therapies
