Simulations of biomolecules in cellular environments
(Theoretical Molecular Science Laboratory, RIKEN)
By developing molecular-level simulation methods and carrying out research on potential applications, we are working to elucidate biological phenomena at the cellular level, and by doing to make possible new therapies and develop new drugs.
Simulation applicable to drug design
(Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo)
With the hope of creating medical drugs that work well but have few side-effects or burdens on patients, we are working to understand the mechanism of diseases and to design new drugs based on this understanding. Through this, we are accelerating drug development.
Hierarchical integrated simulation for predictive medicine
(School of Engineering, The Univ. of Tokyo)
Simulations have been developed for different organ systems, such as the circulation, musculature, skeleton, brain, and nervous system. By integrating them, we will be able to gain an understanding of complex conditions such as heart disease and movement disorders, and to develop optimal personalized medicine to treat these illnesses.
Large-scale analysis of life data
(The Institute of Medical Science, The University of Tokyo)
Cancer and metabolic syndrome are of the biggest interest in health for the people.Our high-speed and high-performance analysis of large-scale life data, such as genomic information, contributes to the progress of personalized medicine to tackle cancer and other diseases.
