About TNSL Research [Japanese here]

Our goal is to decoding and controlling the governing biological principles of human precision information. To achieve this goal, we undertake the following cross-disciplinary approaches:

Real-time sensing and measuring the precision information of human and other relevant organismal models (mouse and zebrafish). We develop methods and use them to uncover dynamics of nano-/micro-/milli-/macro-scale information (e.g., molecular, cellular, tissue/organ, physiological information) leading to the conceptual breakthroughs in biomedical fields.

Modeling the human precision information:
We apply concepts and tools of mathematics and information sciences to model molecular, cellular, organ, and their cross-talks across all scales.

We develop methods and tools enabling the real-time future predictions of the human precision information, like a “weather-forecasting” of human biomedical information across all scales.

We discover molecular, cellular and organ targets enabling the real-time control of human biomedical information, leading to the maintenance of health, prevention of diseases, rejuvenation, healthy-longevity and revitalization of the human life.
