Organs and Biosystems Engineering for regenerative medicine and cell-based assays



Purpose of Research

The general goal of our lab is to culture and/or organization of stem and organ-derived cells in various scales for regenerative medicine and cell-based assays. Chemical system engineering methodologies and its point of view serve as the basis in achieving these goals, because it optimize mass transfers in 3D cell-based tissues or best integrate basic biology, medicine and engineering.

Subjects of Reseach

Progagation and differentiation of stem/progenitor cells in various scales
Organization of vascularized tissues/organs for regenerative medicine
Development of physiological tissue/organ models for efficacy/hazard evaluations and disease analyses
Multi-scale numerical sumulations of human metabolisms


Chemical system engineering-based applications of latest knowledge of biology and medicine
