We are striving to understand and control the spatiotemporal dynamics mechanisms of hierarchical crosstalk in life phenomena, our fundamental theme. A. Fabrication of biomaterials to manipulate the mechanobiology of cells and tissues: We are pioneering new fields in the application research of medical materials and developing novel technologies for disease treatment. B. Mechanistic study of the mechanobiology of cellular and tissue functions: We are establishing new foundations for basic research in biophysics, challenging the frontier of life sciences by elucidating the physical aspects of life phenomena. C. Nanomicrobiomechanics research integrating single-molecule direct observation and nanomechanical measurement and processing techniques: We aim to thoroughly understand the microscopic dynamics of life phenomena and develop methodologies for their application. Through these research endeavors, we are working to unravel the complex mechanisms of life phenomena and to pioneer technologies that apply them to medical care.
