Organ Replacement

About us

Organ replacements, such as organ transplants, artificial hearts or dialyzers, are widely utilized in the clinic as treatments for patients with functional decline or loss of function of organs. Furthermore, the research and development for creating tissues and organs from cells has accelerated due to recent advances in regenerative medicine.
The primary aim of our field is to research and develop new cutting-edge organ replacements. We seek to create all kinds of medical materials including biocompatible materials, as biomaterials are a fundamental component of this work.
We also are developing new methods for next generation organ creation, including high-throughput cell culture, scaled-up vascular network formation, cell/organ culture through use of bioreactors, and further technical development of related devices to perform these methods.

Research

(1)Fabrication of 3D tissues/organs based on cell sheet technology
(2)Fabrication of human tissues/organs
(3)Technical development to engineer skeletal muscle tissue
(4)Regenerative medicine for kidney disease
(5)Technical development for tissue/organ factories
(6)Bio-interfaces for creation of substitutional organs
(7)Engineering of tissues having complex structure/function using micro-fabrication techniques
(8)Development of new treatments with artificial organs
