Biomaterials Research Group

Research Outline

Our research activity aims to establish patient-friendly, effective and/or personalized medical treatments in the orthopedic, dental and cardiovascular fields as well as cancer fields through development and translational research of new technology related to antibody production, growth factor combined medical devices, adjuvants for cancer immunotherapy, combination immunotherapy with traditional therapy including surgery, radiation, chemo and photothermal therapy for cancer, custom-made implants and regenerative medicine. In parallel, we develop standards and guidance on drug-combination medical devices, metallic implants, tissue-engineered medical products and cell-processing systems
