@The research in the Bio-Microsystem Laboratory is focused on the applications of electrochemistry and microfabrication to ΚTAS (micro total analysis systems), cell-based assays, and tissue engineering. Our long-term goals are to fabricate bio/chemical analysis systems which work everywhere including in the body. We are also interested in understanding the structure/function relationship of cells to improve cell-based therapy for several diseases such as liver failure. We utilize microfabrication tools and electrochemical reactions to study the role of cell-cell interactions, cell-extracellular matrix interactions, soluble stimuli, and to build up three-dimensional tissues.
EWe are always looking for outstanding undergraduate and graduate researchers. Please contact Prof. Suzuki or Yokokawa.
