Masaru Tanaka is a professor at Kyushu University. In the period of 1996-2000 he worked for TERUMO Co. and designed novel biocompatible polymers and commercialized as an artificial lung. In 2000 he moved to Hokkaido University and in 2007 he moved to Tohoku University. Stents covered with the self-organized porous 3D films are commercially available in the world clinical market. In 2009 he was awarded a full professorship at Yamagata University. He became a leader of Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers (NEXT Program, Japan 2011-2014). He has received several awards, including the SPSJ Asahi Kasei Award for his intermediate water concept based on the role of interfacial water at materials' interphases. Intermediate water content is a good predictor of biological responses to materials and is using for high-through put materials discovery.
