Our research group is a part of the Division of Bioengineering and Bioinformatics at Hokkaido University. In our research programs, we are investigating new methods of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and imaging for biomedical applications. We have focused on the instrument developments, new technologies, and biomedical applications of EPR spectroscopy and imaging. These research subjects have been supported by a grant from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) .
