Research contributing to the achievement of SDGs at the Meiji University International Institute for Materials with Life Functions
Details of the Initiative
The Meiji University International Institute for Materials with Life Functions is promoting the development of biomaterials that contribute to improving the quality of life (QOL) and extending healthy life expectancy from a global perspective. Specifically, three different research themes are being developed focusing on three vital functions: (1) tissue regeneration, (2) osteogenic potential comparable to autogenous bone, and (3) biodefense. Among other things, we aim to contribute to achieving the SDG goal of “health and well-being for all” through research and development of three-dimensional scaffolds for cells that contribute to regenerative medicine, artificial bones with high osteogenic potential, and biomaterials with infection resistance and anti-tumor effects.
