Development of individual chromosome/DNA manipulation technology and its application to epigenome analysis
Development of on-chip cell fusion devices and its application to regenerative medicine
Development of microfluidic devices for giant vesicle formation and its application
We are conducting research on microfabrication and micromanipulation technology for micro soft materials based on micro-/nano-engineering. We are exploring applications for single-cell/single-molecule analysis, stimulation and response measurement of individual cells/biopolymers, and control/modification of cell functions. These make it possible to obtain knowledge that could not be obtained by conventional research methods, and is expected to contribute to the basic life sciences and medical fields.
