Division of Biotechnology aims to improve quality of human life through the convergence of basic, applied life science and biomaterial technology development. We will conduct research on disease-related mechanisms and therapeutic targets based on the companion indicators, and develop molecular and non-molecular diagnostic indicators including drug-susceptibility. Functional biomaterials and bioplastics using biocompatible polymers are under development and a variety of microplastic models are studied to test its ecological and human health hazards. We aim to contribute to the improvement of national health and quality of life as part of the national science and technology policy related to biomedical research.
