The Advanced Research Center for Innovations in Next-Generation Medicine (INGEM) was established in 2017 as the hub for next-generation medicine to bring together the university’s preeminent research capabilities in fields such as information science, basic life sciences, and genomic medicine as the core subject.
INGEM will promote;
- Research based on data science including artificial intelligence to utilize genomic/omics information and other biological information as well as clinical information.
- Research to unravel the relationship among genetic factors, environmental factors, and diseases.
- Human resource development in these fields.
Through these efforts, INGEM aims to contribute to the realization of next-generation medicine based on systems of personalized medicine and prevention.
INGEM is one of the four Core Research Clusters established in Tohoku University and have responsible for next-generation medicine. The eight departments from the university operate INGEM with close collaboration to build a hub for next-generation medicine.
