Program Theme

Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization has already constructed the integrated biobank, which is consisted of biospecimen and information on cohort studies, genome information and metabolome information from 150,000 participants. The next stage will be how to achieve healthy society using the biobank, finding the genetic cause and calculating the personal risk of the diseases, and constructing the next generation medicine. To explore the road from biobank to real world, we plan the program entitled "Constructing healthy society: the road from integrated biobank to real world."
The very precious 150,000 people scale biobank will contribute to construct healthy society, and the maximization of utilizing that has a key importance. We think the four fields, Novel Biomarkers, Drug Development, Prevention with Genomics, and Prediction with Genome, are most promising. Through the sessions, we will discuss the matters from the wide variety of the aspects with the guest speakers from wide range of specialties like academia, industries, ethics, communication and municipalities.
