Research theme

The Laboratory of Biomechanics aims at clarifying the self-organized regulation mechanism of a diversity of biological phenomena through an interdisciplinary approach, including mechanics, life science, and medical science. Our research topics cover developmental processes (cell differentiation, morphogenesis, and growth) and functional adaptation to environment by remodeling and regeneration of tissues and organs. The major focus of our research is to understand well-organized dynamics of living systems emerging from complex molecular and cellular interactions. Highlighting the roles of “adaptation to mechanical environment” and “hierarchy of structure and function” in the living organisms, we have dedicated to the integrated biomechanics and mechanobiology investigation based on mathematical modeling and simulation combined with experiments.
