Greeting from the Leader
Design for Living Tissue
In the field of medicine and cell biology, there is an increasing demand for in vitro models that capture the function of living tissues. To capture the in vivo function in engineered tissues, there is a need to create bio-structures that mimic the hierarchical architecture and complexity of living tissues. Therefore, controlling cell microenvironment in a highly controllable, reproducible and scalable manner is necessary.By exploiting innovative approaches including microfabrication techniques (MEMS) and material science, we focus on development of three-dimensional engineered tissues for regenerative medicine and fundamental cell biology.
