Kazunori Hoshino, PhD
Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering (Affiliate)
(1) My primary research topic is the development of micromechanical devices for cancer detection, imaging and analysis. Devices I study for cancer investigation include microfluidic devices, micromechanical sensors and imaging scanners.
(2) I will study devices for cancer detection and detailed personalized cancer profiling. I am also interested in a system to study interactions between cancer cells and patient immune systems. The study will lead to early cancer detection and efficient cure of the disease. Analysis of body fluids will be the important part of my study.
(3) I developed a microfluidic device which successfully separated cancer cells from clinical blood samples of patients with breast, prostate, colon, and lung cancer. The project was conducted at the University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
(4) I have more than 100 peer reviewed publications, and I am the inventor of 6 US patents and 12 Japanese patents.
