Developing New Biotechnology by Analyzing the Complexity of Biological Systems and Life Phenomena, and by Attempting to Reconstruct Them Artificially

Biological systems generate natural ingenuity by allowing their processes to evolve from an individual level to combined levels (from gene to cell, and tissue/organ to organism). The aim of our research is the development of new biotechnology, to be achieved by analyzing the complexity of biological systems and life phenomena, and by attempting to reconstruct them artificially. We are particularly interested in research with respect to
1) the development of tissue engineering techniques,
2) biopharmaceutical production using transgenic bioreactors,
3) the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells,
4) the development of gene transfer techniques, and
5) the molecular biology of functional cells.
