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.
