TUAT “moonshot” project PI, Dr. T. Suzuki on NHK-TV (Feb.6)“昆虫食”が世界を救う”Insect Food” will save the world.

多様な方法で「貧栄養のエサ」から「良質のたんぱく質を作り出す」昆虫の驚きの能力や、飼育による環境負荷が小さい「地球にやさしい食糧源」としての可能性も見えてきた。various ways, and their potential as an “earth-friendly food source” with a small environmental impact from their farming, have also come to be recognized.

エアロゾル学会TAKAHASHI賞 AWARD (JAAST) “Deposition of submicron aerosols by a closed-loop flow system” 閉ループ式エアロゾル流によるサブミクロン粒子の沈着

沈着効率が悪い従来法に代わって本手法を気液界面細胞曝露に応用できれば有用である。Our method presented here may potentially be applied for the deposition and analysis of submicron particles on various types of substrate (i.e. air-liquid interface) without the need for vacuum imaging analysis (e.g. electron microscopy).

著書 Nanoparticles Carrying Biological Molecules (Book Chapter)

The conjugation of nanoparticles and biomolecules has found applications in bioimaging, biocatalysis, drug delivery, and biosensors. ナノ粒子と生体分子の「共役」は、バイオイメージング、生体触媒、薬物送達、バイオセンサーなどの分野で応用が見出されている。

マスク装着(エアロゾル学会)Mask-wearing

Point-1.「繊維の隙間より小さい粒子はマスクのフィルターを通過する」は間違い “Particles smaller than the fiber gap pass through the filter of the mask” is not accurate

Point-2. 大事なことはマスクのフィルター性能より,マスクの縁と顔表面との隙間からの漏れ(侵入)を少しでもなくすこと。It is important to eliminate the leakage (intrusion) from the gap between the mask edge and the face surface, rather than the filter performance of the mask.

Opinion: 研究を使った次世代対応型教育へ (The role of research on next generation learning)

対VUCAに適応力の高い人材を養成するには、リスクを意識しながら失敗を経験させ、失敗から学ぶプロセスを反復練習できる環境づくりが必要です。In order to develop highly adaptable human resources to the VUCA, it is necessary to create an environment in which people can experience failures while being aware of risks and repeatedly practice the process of learning from failures.
