Biomaterial Laboratory

Focusing on and utilizing biosubstances as materials

 
Our research focuses on biosubstances such as DNAs, RNAs, proteins and lipids, which are regarded as “promising materials.” We aim to produce substances in order to process and survey them. For example, we are trying to develop cell chips by utilizing the nano-level fine processing technologies, biosensors that utilize biomembrane and catalysts that are capable of processing DNAs and RNAs. Additionally, we utilize both nanomaterial engineering and organic chemistry in pursuing our research.
