Advanced Medical Science(Cooperating field)Systems Biology


We are developing and practicing a methodology of data driven science that analyzes disease in a bird's-eye view from a systematic point of view using mathematical modeling by statistical science and information science and comprehensive biological information. In recent years, with the development of advanced measurement instruments including next generation sequencers, it is now possible to acquire so-called omics data such as genome, epigenome, transcriptome, proteome, and metabolome for large-scale clinical samples. This will accelerate the development of breakthrough molecular targeted therapeutic drugs, diagnostic agents and preventive methods in the medical field, and it is greatly expected that research on complicated diseases such as cancer will progress greatly. However, there is a big gap between expectation and reality. In other words, while comprehensive genome-wide information accumulates like floods, it is a reality that we cannot hope for a significant leap in information accumulation and data analysis by the previous approach.
By fusing data-driven science using statistical science, information science, computational science and experimental verification by molecular biology, we have developed a system biological methodology that exceeds the limits confronted by previous studies. This will promote systemic integrated understanding of molecular pathologies of complicated diseases such as cancer and mental disorders and ultimately provide highly accurate diagnostic methods, therapeutic methods and preventive measures reflecting differences in cancer personality and individual system.

Research Projects

  1. Development of a statistical modeling method to capture life phenomena in a bird's-eye view from data In today's life science, there is a necessity for data-driven research to extract meaningful information from comprehensive and systematically acquired large-scale biological information and comprehensively understand life phenomena as a system as a system It was. We are developing a system biological methodology, grasping the problems occurring in medical research and their discovery and solution in the discussion with the front line researchers in the field, analyzing vast amounts of omics data appropriately and overlooking the life phenomena.
  2. Development of analysis method of object-oriented data The development of mass spectrometry and image analysis, including the next generation sequencer, has caused enormous and heterogeneous big data to be accumulated in the field of biomedical sciences, and their analysis technology base is a challenge. Meanwhile, in the field of statistical science, in addition to numerical matrix type data in conventional multivariate analysis, object-oriented data analysis is emphasizing importance, in which each observation value is represented by various kinds of objects such as histogram, function, tree structure, and image. In our laboratory, we are building a foundation for object-oriented data analysis to capture the ecological system of extremely complicated cancer by making full use of the wide variety of cancer data.
