Exploring systems diagnostics using functional nanoparticles



Purpose of Research

In our body, dynamic and complicated interactions of numerous biomolecules determine biological phenomena. Using functional nanoparticles as a tool, we develop a detection/visualizing method of these interactions. Integrating with the data analysis that considers living body as a system, we aim to develop a novel diagnostic platform enabling early diagnostics, precision medicines, and efficient drug development. Chemical Engineering is a basic principle of our group, to which various medical or biological knowledge are integrated systematically.
