Research Themes

Multiscale analysis of cell shape and cell motility
Control of cell migration by microstructured surface

Research Subjects and Results

Multiscale analysis of cell shape and cell motility:
The analysis on the correlation between the cell shape and the cell motility revealed a characteristics of cellular protrusion.
Control of cell migration by microstructured surface:
I have investigated the effect of the microstructured surface on the cell behavior. The analysis revealed the new functions of microstructured surface to control cell migration.
 RIKEN Research Highlight: Guided by the Groove

Future Target

I am now planning a more detailed study about the interaction between the cell and the microstructured surface from the mechanical point of view.
This study will provide a design concept of the component of cell culture substrate, such as cell confinements with cell filtering function.
