Our research about Bodies on a Chip for animal welfare got featured by BBC Future Now! Thank you very much, Rachel! Thank you very much for my collaborators!! We keep working on it! http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20190122-how-bodies-on-a-chip-can-transform-animal-welfare?fbclid=IwAR1qxGCqhgtlsaGoP4_nw5_MecEVEiM8GkS1wtQJmGyQgKRrOanQHkO9JFQ You can also see the TEDxKyoto video about this project.
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).
The interview of Dr. Kamei got appeared on “Sensei Theater” of Kyoto University! Please find the video from the link below.
Our patent about the new chemical materials for nanofibers to maintain stem cells got registered on the JPO and USPO!
We published some papers, recently! So we have updated “Publications” page accordingly. Please take a look!
A new research assistant, Dr. Wen and a new undergrad research assistant, Mr. Kawasaki have joined our group, today. Welcome!

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.
Dr. Kamei and his colleagues of iCeMS Caravan had visited Oosaka Jogakuin High School on March 9. In this project, iCeMS scientists deliver their original active-learning program to high schools. ///from iCeMS web page/// In this 9th visit of the Caravan, four scientists including Drs Ken-ichiro Kamei (engineer), Monamie Ringhofer (ethologist, KUIAS), Shuhei Furukawa (chemist),… Read More
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.
Help Us, Help the World Visionary science requires visionary philanthropy. It is a sad but true fact that truly transformative science is often the hardest to fund. Risk-taking is admired in fields as diverse as professional sports and stock market trading, but the minute a scientist dons a white lab coat he is expected to… Read More
