Message from Prof. TAKEOKA

Welcome to Takeoka Laboratory. Our Lab studies biomolecular assembling sciences for nano-medicine. Molecular assembling and cooperative phenomena of biomolecules and/or biomacromolecules give us useful implications to construct smart nanodevices having multi-functions for biomedical application (Nano-medicine). Our research group quests the molecular assembling science and engineering of amphiphilic molecules such as phospholipids, glycolipids, aminolipids, and polyethyleneglycol (PEG)-lipids interacted with biomacromoleucles such as bioactive compounds, genes or proteins, in order to design and construct the nanocarriers in biomedical applications such as controlled drug delivery and release systems.

Research Topics

Nanosheet Group

Development of a free-standing ultra-thin and biocompatible polymer nanosheets

Imaging Group

To reveal a lot of unknown cellular activities, we are constructing novel fluorescent probes for bio-imaging

Liposome Group

Liposome should be multi-functional platform for drug delivery system

Platelet Group

Liposome based artificial platelets could promote platelet aggregation
