Laboratory's photo

Using AI-based methods in statistical genetics, we analyze Big Data consisting of a wide variety of information such as genomic variations, lifestyle and health status together with an enormous medical literature in order to identify causal factors for complex common diseases. We aim to enable genomic risk prediction for complex common diseases and then to realize personalized and preventive medicine. Chiefly we investigate Big Data from large-scale prospective genomic cohorts such as the Tohoku Medical Megabank organization.
