Institute for NanoSuit Research

Chairperson Associate Prof. KAWASAKI Hideya

The Institute for NanoSuit Research was launched in 2017. Our research deals with the progressive development of the 'NanoSuit®' which acts as a flexible barrier to the passage of gases and liquids and thus protects many organisms in high vacuum conditions such as electron microscopes. Studies in this new field are combined with several different disciplines; biological, medical and material sciences. As individual scientists apply different methodological tools, their cross communication with various colleagues who tackle the same problems may produce multiple new findings.
