Our current subject of researches are efficacy, safety, and quality management of medical devices (hemodialyzer, intraocular implants, catheters, contact lenses, and so on), dental devices, tissue-engineered medical products, and biomaterials for the devices (natural and synthetic polymers, biodegradable materials, metals, ceramics). Studies on adverse effects of implants after long-term utilization and developing new evaluating methods for brand-new medical devices are our research subjects as well.
