Hayamizu lab. has began in April 2012. Our research target is the control of the interface between biotechnology and nanotechnology. More specifically, we employ solid binding peptides or artificially-designed peptides which have a specific binding affinities to solid surfaces and an ability to form peptide nanostructures on atomically flat surfaces. These peptides self-assembles monolayer-thick nanostructures on surfaces of nano-materials, such as graphene with a thickness of one layer of atoms . New design of peptide sequences and selections of nanomaterials templating peptide self-assembly can create a complex Bio-Nano system which has two different features arise from the petides (self-assembly) and nanomaterials (unique electronic properties).

Open Campus at Ookayama Campus. We had many high school students who have interests in our research.


8.6.2016    Lab Trip. We went to Kusatsu-Onsen (Hot Spring!) to have a lab seminar. Sakuma-kun got a first prize for his nice presentation.
