Research Grants & Projects

Toward the implementation of evidence-based health policies to the real world-a trial of using big data analyses by the integration of arts and sciences
Project Year: Jun 2019 - Mar 2023
New Type Catheter Using Photomechanical Crystal Actuator
Project Year: Apr 2016 - Mar 2018
Endoscope and catheter are important medical equipment for inspection and treatment in modern medicine. We have recently developed various photomechanical crystals, which bend upon light irradiation. In this study, we tried to develop new light-dr...
Reverse reaction of thalidomide hydrolytic product to thalidomide for reconsidering metabolic pathway of thalidomide
Project Year: Apr 2014 - Mar 2016
Recently, Thalidomide(TD) has attracted attention again because of rediscovery of drug efficacy against some intractable diseases. Previously, we found that α- (2-Carboxybenzamido) glutarimide (CBG), which is a primary hydrolysis product of TD in ...
Functional modification of live cells by focused ion beam doping
Project Year: Apr 2012 - Mar 2014
A novel heavy-metal implantation method for living cells using focused ion-beam (FIB) were proposed. We performed Au and As ion doping into living cells by using the FIB implantation method; then intracellular level of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)...
Constructing cDNA for hypothesis verification of crystal melting of Ca2+driven contractile protein
Project Year: Apr 2011 - Mar 2014
1)In order to analyze peptide sequences of a putative protein of spaconnectin which considered to have a co-operative contractile role with the another protein (spasmin), Thus, we intended to collect the peritrich ciliate (Zoothamnium arbuscula st...
