Our paper got published in “Human Cell”! Rodi (currently an assistant professor at Ritsumeikan University) took a lead to accomplish this project. Congrats, Rodi!Title: An efficient simplified method for the generation of corneal epithelial cells from human pluripotent stem cells Rodi Abdalkader* & Ken-ichiro Kamei* Abstract: Corneal epithelial cells derived from human pluripotent stem cells… Read More
Dr. Yoshi Endo (WRC, Kyoto U) finally got his Ph.D. from Kyoto University! Congratulations!
Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have many blessings in the year to come.
Our paper have been published in Optics Letters. This research was based on the collaboration with Dr. Hirori (Kyoto U), Dr. Sakaguchi (Kyoto U) and Dr. Tachizaki (Tokai U) to elucidate the effects of THz pulse on gene networks in human induced pluripotent stem cells. This paper has been introduced on iCeMS, Kyoto U website.… Read More
A new article has been added to “iCeMS Frontrunners”. The tenth interview is with Dr Ken-ichiro Kamei. In the series, we interview the leaders who are active at the forefront of iCeMS, and ask them not only about their researches but also personal lives. Dr Kamei develops the “Body-on-a-Chip” technology, hoping to reduce the use… Read More
Dr. Kamei had an interview to tell about our research, and the video has been appeared on YouTube. We put this video at our “Achievements/Video Gallery”. Please check it out!
Our collaborative paper with Prof. Tabata, Dr. Hirai and Mr. Wu got published in IEEJ Trans. SM.! Jiaxu Wu, Yoshikazu Hirai, Ken-ichiro Kamei, Toshiyuki Tsuchiya, Osamu Tabata, “Novel Microfluidic Device Integrated with a Fluidic-Capacitor to Mimic Heart Beating for Generation of Functional Liver Organoids”, IEEJ Trans. SM, 139-E(2019), pp.209-216 (in Japanese).
We published some papers, recently! So we have updated “Publications” page accordingly. Please take a look!
Finally, our patent about a microfluidic device enabling 3D culture of human pluripotent stem cells got registered on the register of the Japan Patent Office. Accordingly, we have updated “Patents” page on this website.
Mr. Wu (former student of Prof. Tabata Lab. now in U. Tokyo) got IEEJ Excellent Presentation Award!! His research topic is to develop a microfluidic platform to apply mechanical stimulation for hepatic organoids with mimicked heart beating using a fluidic capacitor.
