The Center for Frontier Medical Engineering consists of the Department of Research and Development and the Prototyping and Preclinical Research Laboratory. The Department of Research and Development is a university department with affiliated faculty, to which all faculty staff members including full-time, visiting, and specially appointed faculty members belong without divided into divisions or sections. The Prototyping and Preclinical Research Laboratory develops prototypes for the methods and ideas devised in each project, as well as performing the various basic research projects that precede clinical trials. Our Center keeps two types of project running in parallel: research projects supported by outside investment funds, and tryout research projects to lay the foundations for next-generation medical engineering. Our faculty staff members are also engaged in education, including lectures and supervision of graduation research for undergraduate and graduate students.
