Visions and Missions
With the aim of contributing to overcoming global problems such as medicine and energy issues brought about by the declining birthrate and aging population and globalization, we are working on "nanobiotechnology" that is a new engineering science of the 21st century to be realized by full-fledged integration of nanotechnology and biotechnology. We have advanced vision of rapid cancer diagnosis device by body fluid test, advanced biomolecule creation system etc. We promote R & D aimed at realizing these dream devices and systems that are nowhere to be found. We will strive to discover and nurture students and researchers with excellent creativity and productivity.
