Cell and Tissue Showcasing by Micro-Nano Integrated Devices

Research Project Outline

A system to showcase the behaviors of cells and tissues is realized by introducing artificial bio-surfaces into a microfluidic device. The microenvironment surrounding the cells and tissues, which is defined by the conditions of solutions and contacting surfaces, is controlled in an integrative way in the system. The system will be applied to the studies on the effect of microenvironments on the processes of differentiation of ES and iPS cells, leading to the realization of micro-nano integrated devices relevant to such scientific and diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
