Life Science Laboratory

Life with vibrant microorganisms – beautiful inside and out

 
An extremely important issue that needs solving as soon as possible is how to maintain the wide diversity of organisms and living things that support our ecosystems. Our laboratory is researching how to maintain and develop biodiversity (resources) through biotechnology, and how to effectively use these rerources to clean up the global environment, which include our own bodies.

For Society

 
 

Making things creates waste. Today, we pay money to dispose of our trash. Pollution and toxins are generated as we throw away more and more garbage. We are trying to develop technology that harnesses the power of living organisms to purify waste and develop technology to recycle any useful substances (rare metals) contained within.
