Our laboratory conducts research and provides education on biological tissues and biomaterials that can substitute for or form biological tissues. Our goals are to: 1) evaluate the physical properties of biomaterials; 2) develop biological tissue regeneration techniques; and 3) create novel biomaterials by applying evaluation, analysis, and control techniques, such as crystallography and crystal plasticity, that have been developed by materials science. In particular, by drawing attention to the characteristic layer-by-layer anisotropic arrangement and structure of biological tissues, we strive to create novel materials that can be highly functional even in special environments involving biological tissues. We hope to ultimately establish a new academic field, “materials science of anisotropy.”
