Research Field

We are going to develop novel and unique “Nanobiomaterials” for medical treatment and other advanced technologies based on research fields of Macromolecular Chemistry and Molecular Assembly. Especially, we are going to investigate the relationship between characterization of the nanobiomaterials and their potential abilities.


Macromolecular Chemistry, Molecular Assembly, Nanobiomaterials, Drug delivery system, Ultra-thin films (Nanosheets), Nanoparticles
