The management of TMDU consists in the creation of an environment in which all associated with TMDU can thrive, in accordance with the basic mission statement and under the leadership of the president.

Our laboratory is developing new mathematical/computer science methodologies and applying them to real omics data, in particular, clarifying the relationship between an individuals’ omics data with their disease susceptibility and drug response, drug efficacy, dose requirements and adverse reactions. Also, we conduct research on next generation methodologies, e.g. integrating various omics and molecular datasets to clarify trans-omics relationships. Such research will identify disease-related genes for new drug targets, and establish personalized and/or precision medicine.
While Japan leads the world in medical procedures such as endoscopy, its global presence in bioscience research, global health and medical industries is fading. Therefore, in order for Japan to become a future world leader in the fields of medicine and clinical practice and to play a central role in contributing to solving complex problems towards the improvement of world health, the need for medical personnel who can always think and act from a broad viewpoint is essential.
