Biofluid Science and Engineering Laboratory
Elucidating cardiovascular physiological phenomena and apply them to medical new technologies
Our laboratory currently researches cardiovascular physiology, for examples, blood flow mechanism, thrombus formation mechanism, functions of blood cells and plasma proteins, angiogenesis, oxygen transport, autonomic nerves, new diagnostics method of blood cells, optimal treatment strategy of medical devices, etc. In order to research such themes, we apply Engineering technology, such as manufacturing, motion control technology, 3DCAD, fluid dynamics theory, flow visualization, optical measurements, image analysis, and medical and biological research methods, etc.

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.
