    The Ishii-Ishibashi Laboratory - Department of Extended Intelligence for Medicine


    Data-driven biomedical science



    To develop precise prediction-based treatments and preventions, we are studying diverse and dynamic processes of patients from their data. For that, new analytical methods by combining a causal model, information geometry, machine learning and a reduced order model for non-linear phenomenon are developing. The knowledge gained from these novel analyses will be implemented in medicine by the concept of extended intelligence.

    The aim of the Division of Brain Sciences is a multi-layered (gene, cell, circuit) understanding of brain functions. We regard the brain as the sum of its parts—neuron, glia, and vasculature—and explores the unseen interaction between the brain and peripheral organs that engages in higher brain functions such as emotion and motivation. These efforts will lead to the development of novel treatments for mental illness.
