Dr. Tomoyuki Kawase


Research Interests
My principal research interests lie in the fields of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, especially skeletal regeneration using blood-derived biomaterials, such as platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin. We are also developed and applied alveolar bone-derived periosteal cell sheets in periodontal tissue regenerative therapy.
