Design of novel biomaterials based on "molecular psycorheology"



Purpose of Research

The major objective of our laboratory is to construct and develop a discipline that precisely designs materials to match human sensibility from the molecular level via rheology (Molecular psychorheology). To this purpose, we are establishing quantitative evaluation methods for sensibility, and developing techniques to elucidate and control the correlation between rheology and molecular dynamics, with the aim of freely controlling rheology.

Subjects of Reseach

Elucidation of rheological properties of slime with precisely structures
Elucidation of relationship between rheology and molecular dynamics of slime
Development of novel rheological materials for medical applications using slime


Design of biomaterials from the molecular level by quantitatively evaluating human sensibility needs for materials, using the rheology of soft matter as a core technology
