be established for Virtual Laboratory of NIT
- Director: Hideo FUJIMOTO,
- Professor of Nagoya Institute of Technology Graduate
School of Engineering and Director of Quality Innovation Techno-Center
- Members: About 40 researchers in medical science and engineering fields
- (as of September 2004/ New members invited at any time)
|This laboratory has been advertising for about 10 enterprise members since
Membership fee: Operational expenses (\50,000/ month ×12 months)
(After setting up a research project, expenses for research etc. will be
necessary for every project.)
This Medical Engineering Lab aims to become a global base for new industry
creation and for researches of wide range of medical engineering field
from development of training system of medical education and surgical operation
support apparatus to fields of genetic treatment, regeneration treatment,
Advantages to join Medical Engineering Lab:
- It is possible to exchange opinions with various researchers of engineering
and medical science.
- It is possible to set up a cooperation research project of medical science
and engineering appropriate for the needs.
- The aims are to set up medical engineering projects of university-industry
collaboration and to create new products and new industries.
|Particulars of Medical Engineering Laboratory:
For Medical Engineering Laboratory, intramural researchers of engineering
and researchers of medical science in Tokai District have carried out the
activities aiming to explore a research field led by medical engineering.
Medical engineering is in the compound boundaries of medical science and
engineering, and a lot of fields are associated with this field (see Fig.
In 2002, enlightening lectures were held 5 times, inviting extramural researchers
of medical science as lecturers, with more than 250 participants. In May
of 2003, lecture on preparation for establishment (with 120 participants,
see Fig. 2) was held. And this laboratory was established formally in October
2003 after arranging intramural regulations. This laboratory is drawing
attention of not only researchers but also local societies, enterprises,
and administration (see Fig. 3).
At present, about 40 members are carrying out several medical engineering
research projects. We aim to research medical engineering field and create
a new industry by strengthening the cooperation with regional enterprises
and companies as well as attempt to increase members and research projects.
We look forward to many participants in this laboratory.
