Exploring biointerfaces with our original analytical techniques

Our research targets are
1. Development of new experimental approaches to investigate various surfaces & interfaces
2. Understanding of molecular processes at biointerfaces
(interfaces between artificial surfaces and cells (or biomolecules). Starting from the elucidation of fundamental interfacial phenomena, we propose their applications in industrial fields.

We are a team of people from various fields and nationalities with various scientific backgrounds and pursue the state-of-the-art research in this interdisciplinary field.
