In our group, we are researching a new medical treatment, "Gel Medicine", using hydrogel.
Gel Medicine is a new medical concept that treats diseases by simply injecting gels into the body. For this purpose, it is essential to design the in vivo life cycle of hydrogels.
In other words, it is necessary to "make" the hydrogel in the living body, "cure" the disease, and "disintegrate" the hydrogel. We aim to understand the fundamental principles of hydrogels and to create valuable biomaterials based on their basic knowledge.
