Furukawa Laboratory aims to develop fundamental technologies necessary for tissue engineering in terms of biomechanics. By designing devices for physical stimulation, we focus on enhancement of the functionality of tissue-engineered organs such as cartilage, blood vessel, and bone, with immature stem cells as cell sources. In particular, tissue-engineered cartilages produced at this lab have shown very promising results. Like such, we are actively developing new technologies for tissue-engineering with clinical feedbacks.
Regenerative engineering of vascular blood vessel and cartilage tissue under mechanical stress
3D organ design with/without scaffolds
Rapid prototyping technology for 3D scaffold design
Real-time imaging of blood vessels under physiolosical stimulations
Let’s enjoy cutting-edge researches for regenerative medicine based on engineering technologies!
