The Matsuura Laboratory, established in April 2012, aims to "create biological systems through chemistry" using organic chemistry, peptide chemistry, nucleic acid chemistry, and intermolecular interaction analysis. For example, we are creating nanocapsules like viral capsids by self-assembly of synthetic peptides. We are also challenging the creation of artificial dynamic nanomaterials with microtubules and "molecular cybernetics. Why don't you join us and open up a new field of chemistry?

Matsuura Laboratory is widely recruiting students who wish to enroll in Master's and Doctor's course programs.
