At the Center for Integrative Medical Sciences, we aim to elucidate the pathogenesis of human diseases and establish new therapeutic methodologies by conducting cutting-edge research on human genome and immune function. To that end, we have established four Divisions: (1) Division of Genomic Medicine, (2) Division of Human Immunology, (3) Division of Disease Systems Biology, and (4) Division of Next Generation Cancer Immunology. These groups work together to promote state-of-the-art research.

We apply multiomics analyses across each hierarchy of genome, proteins, lipids, cells, tissues, and individuals by utilizing computational methods of data analysis, combining statistics and mathematics. We also establish a platform that will allow us to comprehend the results obtained in experimental animals and apply them to human immunology research, and to elucidate mechanisms of human pathology using experimental systems such as cells and animal models. Further, we utilize these infrastructures to develop next generation cancer immunology research.
