BIOMATERIALS PROJECT Functional Materials

Realizing the next-generation medicine

Creation of highly functional biomaterials and devices

We seek to create new functional biomaterials for future medical care with the aim of realizing SDG No. 3 “Good health and well-being,” as well as to contribute to SDG No. 9 “Industry, innovation and infrastructure,” and by making use of the characteristics of biomaterials with high bio-affinity, to SDG No. 12 “Responsible consumption and production.” Toward these ends, we are marshaling the comprehensive research capability of Tohoku University as a whole to develop unprecedented highly functional biomaterials.

Aiming to achieve basic technologies in support of leading-edge medical care

By fusing biomaterials and nanotechnology, we seek to create bio-hybrid materials and devices equipped with advanced functions not possible with biomaterials or artificial materials on their own—and to extend these to technologies for diagnosis and treatment. We will contribute to the realization of future medical care from the viewpoint of materials science by forming alliances with researchers in related areas in Japan and abroad, and through collaboration with mathematical science.
