Development of a cell-like robot based on centrosome-microtubule network
The fabrication of micro-robots using biomaterials has the potential to create innovative medical technologies. In this study, I will fabricate micro-robots using a centrosome-microtubule network as a biomaterial. The centrosome-microtubule network is a dynamic intracellular structure that drives cell polarization and movement. Therefore, this research will exploit this dynamic nature and add artificial manipulation techniques to develop micro-robots.


I will do my best to apply ideas based on living systems to the development of important technologies.
