Shuichi Takayama's Biography

Shuichi Takayama, Professor, Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, and Price Gilbert, Jr. Chair in Regenerative Engineering and Medicine Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology & Emory University School of Medicine

Prof. Shuichi Takayama’s research interests started with bioorganic synthesis at the University of Tokyo and Scripps Research Institute. Subsequently he pursued postdoctoral studies in bioengineered microsystems at Harvard University as a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Fellow. He spent 17 years at the University of Michigan in the Biomedical Engineering Department and Macromolecular Science and Engineering Program, then moved to the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory School of Medicine in the summer of 2017. He is an associate editor of Integrative Biology and recipient of the Pioneers of Miniaturization Prize. He is also the Director of the Nakatani RIES Program which promotes international undergraduate student internships between the US and Japan.

There is a need to better understand lung disease, accelerate drug discovery, and better predict human clinical trial outcomes and individualized drug responses. This presentation will describe efforts to develop microphysiological systems (MPSs) to accomplish this goal. Specific topics include the first microfluidic lung-on-a-chip developed at Michigan. A Transwell-96 based air-blood barriers that can be coupled with automated flow cytometry. And a 384 well format assay using lung Organoids with Reversed Biopolarity (lung-ORBs). Specific applications include single-ORB based high-throughput assays of SARS-CoV-2 infection and therapeutics, neutrophilic inflammation studies, and analyzing the injurious effects of fluid mechanical effects associated with lung stethoscope sounds.
