Main Research Interests

Our main research interests are in biomaterials that can be applied to tissue engineering, drug delivery, and blood substitute. Additionally, we have been focusing on developing nano-scale drug-delivery carriers and tissue-engineering scaffolds.

Tissue Engineering

A few approaches (multilayered acellular scaffolds, cell sheet fragments and cell bodies) are developed by our group for cardiac tissue engineering and regeneration after myocardial infarction.

Thermo- and pH-sensitive Hydrogels


Thermo- and pH-sensitive hydrogels are developed for drug delivery or cell cultivation to fabricate cell sheet fragments or cell bodies.



Multifunctional nanocarriers are developed for imaging, targeting and therapeutic purposes or drug/gene delivery; a delivery platform technology for oral delivery of protein, polysaccharide or nucleic drugs is developed.

Superparamagnetic nanofibers/nanoparticles

  Nanofibers and nanoparticles with superparamagnetic capabilities are developed for manipulating of cell alignment and drug delivery.
