(Article from "TOKAISM"*)
Tokai University's Micro/Nano Technology Center is utilizing the concept of "interdisciplinary research " - collaboration between researchers in different specialist fields, such as medicine, science, and engineering - to develop next-generation medical technologies that benefit society.
The Center has recently added specialists in humanities fields to its research team, and is working closely with corporations to conduct innovative research in a diverse range of fields not limited to medical technology. We talk to Professor Rio Kita, one of the Center's key members, about the team's research findings so far, as well as the Center's future plans.
