Analytical chemistry / Astrobiology

 We are trying to develop microanalysis for biological molecules and complex high molecular organic matter, and tying to approach Earth and planetary science, life science, and environmental science with it.
 Among them, we focus our attention to research project related with Astrobiology including origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe and the Earth.
