Welcome to Motomu Tanaka Team Kyoto!
Motomu Tanaka Team Kyoto


Motomu Tanaka Lab Heidelberg
The Tanaka Team is cultivating a new research field "Physics of Cells and Tissues" by the combination of:
(1) tailor-made biointerface models (such as "supported membranes", Tanaka and Sackmann, Nature, 437, 656 (2005)).
(2) quantitative physical tools both in real space (e.g. live-cell imaging and analysis) and reciprocal space (advanced X-ray and neutron scattering, diffraction imaging).

Our strengths are:
(i)  cross-disciplinary activities together with clinical doctors, biologists, material scientists, mechanical engineers, and theoretical physicists.
(ii) international collaboration through our partner lab in Heidelberg University (Germany).
