Laboratory Introduction

Main work of the division of personalized prevention and epidemiology is collecting information on community health after East-Japan Earthquake. We are now establishing Tohoku Medical Megabank Community-Based Cohort Study. Our objectives are to clarify the health impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake in community, and to clarify gene-environment interaction with lifestyle-related diseases.
