understand as it is

What does it mean to understand the laws of this world? When you take an interesting part out of the whole world, how can you say what the world is like and what it contains? From this point of view, our laboratory always thinks about how to express nature as it is as a mathematical and physical model, what we can discard and what we can understand. I'm here. We are building new mathematical and physics theories that represent the world, and working to develop them into engineering.

​Research results on the effects of physical environment asymmetry on epithelial morphogenesis were published in SCIENTIFIC REPORTS.

We have mathematically shown that one of the principles behind the differences in the shape of protrusions, folds, and networks in epithelial morphology is the asymmetry of the physical environment.

Recruitment of Specified Researcher

We are looking for specific researchers who will promote research on mathematical modeling and simulation of biological morphogenesis, or on engineering applications of the principles of biological morphogenesis. Those who are ambitious, such as those who want to challenge programming or those who want to expand their specialty, are welcome. Anyone can apply electronically.JREC-INplease look at.
