Pr. Shoji Takeuchi

Microfluidic technology for 3D tissue construction

Thursday 6th July 2017 at 10h45 am

Institut de Biologie de Lille, Lecture hall
1, rue du Professeur Calmette
59021, LILLE

After receiving a B.E., M.E. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tokyo, Japan, in 1995, 1977, and 2000, respectively, Shoji joined the faculty. He is Professor in the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo and Director of the Collaborative Research Center for Bio/Nano Hybrid Process at that institution. He is also a Visiting Professor, iCeMs, at Kyoto University

Research Interests: Shoji studies biohybrid systems, tissue engineering, artificial cells/lipid bilayer membranes, and MEMS/microfluidic devices. His group focuses on the design and fabrication of bio-hybrid systems that combine bio-functional materials with micro/nano devices. He has developed in vivo sensors for physiologic monitoring and micro neural electrodes that can be used as the neural interfaces between living organs and external monitors.

Professional Activities and Awards: Shoji has authored more than 140 peer-reviewed publications, filed over 70 patents, and served on technical program committees for numerous conferences. He has been recognized with many honors including the MEXT Young Scientists’ Prize in 2008, the JSP prize in 2010, and the ACS Analytical Chemistry Young Innovator Award in 2015.
