Innovating biology by microdevices
This laboratory aims to promote integration and sophistication of biological experiments using micro structures and channels based on semiconductor fabrication methods. These sizes are near the size of hair or mosquito needle width (10～100 μm) or less. By exploiting these devices to chemical or biological fields, precise cell or molecular handling can be realized. Furthermore, our group focuses on unique functions of cells or tissue of living creatures. By combining this with microfabrication technology, we aim to new functional devices and propose future ideal machine models.
- Integrated and sophisticated biological experiments
