先端再生医学研究センター

センターの紹介

先端再生医学研究センターは,最先端の再生医学の取り組みから次世代の再生歯科医療を実現・先導するための研究組織として2015年4月に歯学研究科に設置されました。

当センターは,「再生医学研究ユニット」と「再生医療推進ユニット」からなり,再生医療に関する基礎研究から,これを臨床の形にするトランスレーショナルリサーチまで,各ステージの技術開発を推進しています。メンバーはさまざまな基礎・臨床分野の専門家で構成され,既存の歯学概念や枠組にとらわれない独創的で分野融合的な研究を目指します。

また,当センターでは,歯学研究科の研究プロジェクトを対象に,オンデマンドで細胞生物学,分子生物学的技術の指導を行っています。
