using a functional molecule
responding to intracellular signals

We are studing on development of novel biotechnologies that engineer the cellular functions, e.g., development of bio-chips for diagnosis, in which intracellular signals exhaustively are analyzed, and development of drug delivery system responding to the intracellular signals. We are also developing functional drug delivery systems controlled by photothermal effect of gold nanoparticles and novel bio-device based on functional polymers.
