Department of Tissue Engineering

The Department of Tissue Engineering promotes studies using human cells from the standpoint of basic science and clinical application, based on the interdisciplinary integration of knowledge and techniques in various fields, such as basic medicine, clinical medicine and material engineering, aiming at the application of outcomes to regenerative medicine as early as possible.

Outline

The Department of Tissue Engineering consists of 3 courses and 1 projects researching tissue engineering for bones, cartilages, and the kidney

Research policy

Regenerative medicine is a new approach aiming at the treatment of irreversible disorders and damage to body organs that cannot be treated by conventional medicine. The Department of Tissue Engineering promotes studies concerning tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to make it possible to use regenerative medicine in clinical settings.

Specialties

The Division conducts research to contribute to treatment and drug discovery in the following areas (Some examples are also shown):

Research on renal regeneration

Research of new techniques for renal regeneration using iPS cells. (Advanced Renal Tissue Engineering)

Research on bone and cartilage regeneration

Development of an easy, accurate and non-invasive system to detect differentiation of bone and cartilage, development of artificial bone in a three-dimensional shape with function to determine the optimal signal to induce the differentiation in bone and cartilage, etc. (Department of Bone and Cartilage Regeneration) Formation of highly safe and practical regenerated cartilage and bone, establishment of a feasible production system and quality control method, etc. (Department of Cartilage and Bone Regeneration) Establishment of tissue engineering techniques for tracheal cartilages, and its applications in tracheal stenosis treatment. (Pediatric Surgery project)
