Development of cell culture scaffold made of natural polymers for tissue engineering.

Prof. Dr. Abe and his laboratory are engaged in development of tissue culture materials mainly focused on the regenerative medicine. They have found that polysaccharide type cell culture scaffold can regulate the differentiation of tissue cells (stem cell, osteoblast, cartilage cell and so on).
