Laboratory of Material Biology

What structures in living things (especially tree cells) are made and how do they function?
We will evolve that knowledge.


In this field, we are conducting research on wood from a wide range of viewpoints and approaches. In particular, we are actively conducting research on the biosynthetic mechanisms of wood and biomass components, microstructural analysis of wood cell walls and biomass, and the integration of the humanities and sciences in wood culture.
