Nature-inspired Biomaterials Engineering LaboratoryThe NBEL has developed versatile sticky polymeric materials mimicking adhesion mechanism of nature creatures, such as marine mussels, sandcastle worms, and tunicates, and astringency originating from plants. The tissue-adhesive materials effectively form 1D particulates for drug delivery, 2D pre-hydrogel film for the interface of wearable/implantable bioelectronics, and 3D hydrogels for hemostasis and tissue repair. We are highly interested in a new class of technologies for solving the issues associated with peripheral nerve defect, brain disorders and cardiovascular diseases.
