Tanaka laboratory is doing this kind of research

"Intermediate Water" Concept

To achieve a greater depth in “Biomaterials Science”
Biocompatible materials are strongly required for the development of medical and healthcare devices. The purpose of our laboratory is to shed light on the fundamental science of biomaterials design through the inclusive comprehension of interactions between material interfaces and bio-components.
We achieve the research of biomaterials based on three base techniques of i) Polymer Synthesis, ii) Bio-Interface Analysis, and iii) Cell-Material Interaction Analysis.

Our research will support a development of medical technology and healthy and comfortable life.
