Engineering use of life’s excellent functions
Our laboratory studies living organisms from an engineering perspective and develops highly functional materials, devices and systems by using or mimicking the excellent functions that living organisms have. For example, biosensors that can easily measure blood glucose levels or conduct genetic testing are proven to be effective in medical care, and those capable of measuring the levels of environmental pollutants are indispensable to managing the environment.
