Our research group seeks to achieve an unprecedented bio-integrated electronic system that is able to bridge the undesired gap
between approaches of materials science and medicine, combining applications of soft and/or self-healing materials to high
performance flexible/stretchable devices with translational biomedical engineering efforts.
Our research group focuses on 2 kinds of soft bio-integrated electronic systems: Self-healing and stretchable artificial skin
systems and neural devices. We hope that these works will be a valuable stepping stone which brings qualitative improvement
to oursociety.
