Research topics
Correlation between physical factors of peptidic supramolecules and interaction with targeted cells
Materials that function in living organisms exhibit actions that depend on various physical factors such as shape and size. In this study, I will create supramolecules based on peptide amphiphiles with varied physical factors and verify their effects on cells. I aim to create materials that function efficiently on target cells by correlating cell states with physical factors of the materials.


I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the award of the Inamori Research Grant. With the support from this grant, I would like to conduct research that will lead to the development of biofunctional materials by clarifying the correlation between the physical properties of materials and their effects on cells.
