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.
