About awarded research

 "Accurate Evaluation of Hepatocyte Metabolisms on a Nobel OxygenPermeable Material with Low Sorption Characteristics"

We have been focusing on the control of oxygen supply flux to improve hepatocyte culture systems. The developed culture system is simple yet highly physiological and will serve as the basis for medium- to long-term metabolic toxicity test systems. This culture system is expected to be widely used for drug metabolism and toxicity studies.


Your impression & future plan

I am honored to receive such a wonderful award. I will pursue my research career to fulfill the purpose and expectations of the award.
