Biofluid Scienceand Engineering Laboratory
Elucidating biological phenomena and applying them to medical technologies
Our laboratory is currently measuring and analyzing material properties at the micro-level using a micromechanics test method we developed and applying the results in designing various industrial products through computer simulations. Reliability analysis methods developed by our laboratory have become an international standard, winning high evaluations in Japan and abroad. Recently, our laboratory was in the spotlight for developing a new material composed of nanoparticles.

For SocietyWe conduct research on biology from engineering approaches, such as the use of microscopes, fluid mechanics, machine designing and processing, mechanical motion control, measurements, high-speed cameras, and image analyses. What students take up during research activities will help develop various technologies in society.
- Research on the mechanism of blood cell deformation during flow.
- Research on artificial organs and hemolysis (damages to blood corpuscles and proteins), as well as thrombus (blood clots).
- Development of new medical equipment.
