Research Outline

Research and education on functional units for the future intelligent systems from micro and nano-scale. System integration based on MEMS and nanotechnology. The system design is based on physical and chemical phenomena in micro and nano domain and bio-mimetic approach. Our objective is to improve the QOL (Quality of Life) by the application of robotics and micro-nano technologies to biomedicine.
