Mechanical circulatory devices provides additional support for patients with refractory cardiogenic shock. We have been developing a short-term ventricular assist device (VAD) that is minimally invasively placed, catheter mounted micro-axial flow blood pump for bridge to recovery, bridge to decision. The micro-axial ow blood pump has a diameter of 8 mm and length of 50 mm, it removes blood from left ventricle and pump out in ascending aorta through aortic valve. The micro-axial flow blood pump has a magnetic uid shaft seal that is a non-mechanical contact seal without frictional heat and material wear, and hence it has excellent durability.ResearchAreasComplex systemsKeyword□Biomedical Engineering□Articical Organs■Articial Heart■Ventricular Assist Device■Biomedical MeasurementRelatedresearchSDGDevelopment of catheter mounted micro-axial ow blood pumpProfessorEiji OkamotoCenter / Research Institute, etc.Liberal Arts Education Center, Sapporo CampusKitami city used to be known as the town of “Hakka” (Japanese Peppermint; Cornmint) because of its largest share of the world menthol market. However, various changes in social conditions during 20th century the hakka production gradually decreased to zero in 1983. Investigations have shown that the resources of the historical peppermint industry have been well preserved in the Kitami area, both individually and by ocial/private organizations. Several actions have taken towards the revival of the peppermint industry in Japan. The present and future of the peppermint industry is an eective theme for career education in universities.ResearchAreasComplex systemsKeyword■Liberal arts■Chemical education■Mint■STS■KitamiRelatedresearchSDGResearch on the Present Peppermint Industry in Kitami Area and Its Application to Liberal Arts Education.ProfessorMitsunori IzumiCenter / Research Institute, etc.Liberal Arts Education Center, Sapporo CampusCenter / Research Institute, etc.Institute of Oceanic Research and DevelopmentIn the earth, microorganisms thrive in any environments. We are not able to them through naked eye because of their smallness. I have studied soil bacteria called as Bacillus subtilis, which is a single cell. Such a tiny cell has about 4000 genes, which are tightly regulated to survive in sometimes harsh environments. I am interested in the orchestration of gene expression in such a simple organism compared to large mammal cells, however, from my point of view, bacterial gene regulation is considered as complex and complicated like a microcosm. In several decades, I have been attracted to them.ResearchAreasBiological sciencesKeyword□Bacteria□Gene regulation□Metabolism□Signal transduction■BacillusRelatedresearchSDGMechanism of genetic regulation in Bacillus subtilisProfessorMitsuo Ogura140
