His inventions are not only state-of-the-art healthcare devices to which semiconductor technology is applied, but uniquely also building a strong team involving important stakeholders from different fields. We hope this talk makes you consider how to give great impact to society.
"坂田利弥/バイオセンサ研究者 東京大学大学院工学系研究科マテリアル工学専攻准教授。生体を害することなく診断できる簡便で安価な計測技術の研究を進める。半導体トランジスタの原理を用いることにより、生体中の分子・イオンを検出し、様々な生体分子や細胞機能を解析できる超高感度バイオセンサの開発に成功。事業応用として株式会社PROVIGATEを設立し、世界に４億人いる糖尿病患者のQOL向上を目指す。 Toshiya Sakata / Biosensor Scientist As an Associate Professor in Materials Engineering at the University of Tokyo, Professor Toshiya Sakata applies semiconductor transistor technology to biosensors. The extremely high sensitivity of these biosensors can detect molecules and ions within the body enabling cell function and biomolecule analyses. These practices are part of his pursuit for an easy, inexpensive and noninvasive way to monitor the body. He founded PROVIGATE CO., LTD to improve the quality of life for the 400 million diabetics living around the globe. "
