Takayama lab

We construct multicellular models to dissect cell signaling pathways, understand disease physiology, test therapeutics, and perform cell-based assays.

What we do

Organoids, biomaterials,

bioassays, and more

Organoid disease models

We use our patented, high throughput hanging drop platform to generate  organoids modeling breast cancer metastasis and other diseases.

tuanble Neutrophil Extraecllular Traps

We mimic NETs using engineered DNA with controlled composition to investigate their role in pathophysiology.


We use microfluidic platforms to model the tissue microenvironment with a focus on mechanical force as a driver of pathophysiology.
