Bioprocess engineering lab:Bio-production system

Our laboratory research focuses on biomanufacturing processes that take advantage of bioreactions and biofunctions, from the production of useful substances using microorganisms to the creation of tissues that contribute to regenerative medicine. Bioprocess engineers, one of the resources required for research, development and manufacturing in the fermentative food, chemical, pharmaceutical and regenerative medicine industries, must understand bioreaction characteristics and conduct engineering design, construction, and optimization of production processes from the kinetics and materials balance viewpoint. For this, analyzing and quantifying complex biological reactions of individual cells/tissues/living organisms are necessary. Additionally, understanding and identifying the main parameters that govern the phenomena of interest, and controlling these parameters to readily manipulate the phenomena, are required. Our research focus is on all the tools and technologies essential for these activities.
