The Laboratory of Micro-Biomechanics is engaged in research projects in the area of biomechanics, bioMEMS and mechanobiology under the supervision of Prof. Ohashi. The laboratory includes 3 DC, 7 MC, 6 Bachelors and 2 research students.
The main event of our laboratory is to have a weekly lab meeting during which students give a talk about their research topic and recent results before having a discussion. Moreover, we have lab seminars twice a week to gain knowledge about biomechanical engineering which is the focus of our studies. Since our laboratory has many exchange students from various countries, we can experience different languages, cultures and thoughts.
We aim to contribute to a further understanding of cell functions from the viewpoint of mechanics, and to provide useful devices and techniques for clinical applications.
Annually softball match among the research rooms in the school of engineering is hold from 9/24. Our team which has the largest number of girls among all the teams, played two games with the score 1:9 and 4:11.Read More
With the visitation of Prof. Peter Lee from University of Melbourne and Prof. Ganbat Danaa from Mongolian University of Science and Technology, a special seminar named “Advanced Biomechanics” was hold in the first week with Prof. Ohashi being the chairman. Prof. Peter Lee discussed his biomechanical engineering research in developing low-cost artificial limbs by using the Pressure Cast (PCAST) technique and his experience working with patients and clinics in Vietnam to implement PCAST. Prof. Ganbat introduced his study of keratin from Mongolian camel hair and goat cashmere for biocompatible materials and our researches related to biomechanics. This seminar gave us a good chance to communicate with researches around the world and get a deeper understanding of biomechanics.Read More
Two undergraduate students from University of Philippine came to our lab for a two-month internship program. During the two months they studied cell migration under the guidance of Prof. Ohashi and PhD student Mazlee. They finished the program and gave us an excellent presentation. Not only did they study hard but they also got along very well with lab members. Their staying with us brought fresh air to our lab.Read More
