Organ Developmental Engineering -Isotani Lab-


Associate Professor Ayako Isotani

Xenogeneic chimeras might be thought unrealistic animals which are appeared in computer games and SF cartoons. However, recently, they are used as a tool of the study of life science by the progress of the developmental engineering.

As a researcher, I also aim to study leading to the future using developmental engineering.

Assistant Professor Syunsuke Yuri

My research goal in this lab is to make a functional organ by using Xenogeneic chimera.


D2 Gema Puspa Sari

I am from Indonesia. My goal is to develop chimeric animal models to solve the health problem worldwide. I believe that the biomedical research is an important step to improve human health in the future.

M2 Jonathan Lim Jun-Yong

I am from Malaysia. I am interested to produce chimeric models to study the mechanism of immune system. I believe that through education, we can make give the next generation a better future.

M2 Ippei Kanatani
