Biological & Soft Matter Physics Group

We use a soft matter physics approach to cell-mimicking systems so that we can understand the physical principles of biological systems. Living cells are a form of self-assembled soft matter. Lipid bilayer membranes are essential components of living organisms. We i) construct artificial lipid vesicles which produce cellular dynamics, such as endocytosis and autophagy, ii) elucidate the association of biological and nonbiological nano-materials on membrane surfaces, and iii) conduct quantitative analyses based on condensed soft matter physics.
