OUTLINE

Our main research themes involve identifying risk factors for cancer, cardiovascular disease, and aging (including disability and dementia) using observational epidemiology methods, and verifying the effectiveness of preventive health services using intervention epidemiology methods. Our division manages two cohort study datasets covering 50,000 subjects each. For more than 20 years we have investigated associations between this detailed lifestyle and diagnostic data, and subsequent mortality risk, incident risk of cancer, healthcare costs, risk of certificate of long-term care insurance, and incident risk of dementia. We have fully utilized this abundant resource to publish many papers in the first-grade international journals, and our findings have been receiving attention worldwide. We propose policies for the extension of a healthy life expectancy based on this epidemiological evidence.
We have been conducting health surveys on the survivors of Tohoku great earthquake victims every year since 2011. We identify factors that affect the mental and physical health of the survivors, and propose policies for supporting their resilience. In addition, we are actively involved in the health support of the survivors such as in health check-up, health education, and classroom to improve nutrition and exercise.
We also believe it is very important to educate and train the next generation in the field of epidemiology and public health such as epidemiologists, health policy administrators, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals who are mindful of disease prevention.

私たちの主要な研究テーマは、がん・循環器疾患・老化(要介護や認知症を含む)の危険因子を観察疫学の手法で解明し、その予防に向けた対策の効果を介入疫学の手法で検証することです。
私たちの分野は、5万人規模のコホート研究データを2つ保有しており、詳細な生活習慣・健診データとその後の死亡リスク・がん罹患リスク・医療費・介護保険認定リスク・認知症発生リスクとの関連を20年以上にわたって追跡しています。この豊富な研究資源をフルに活用して、一流の国際医学雑誌に論文を発表し、その成果は世界的にも注目されています。これらの疫学的エビデンスに基づいて、健康寿命の延伸策を提言しています。
私たちは、東日本大震災被災者を対象とする健康調査を毎年行っています。これにより、被災者の心身の健康に影響を及ぼす要因を解明するとともに、被災者支援のあり方を提言しています。また、被災者に対する健康支援(健診、保健指導・健康教育、栄養や身体運動などの教室開催など)も活発に行っています。
私たちは、疫学や公衆衛生の領域において次代を担う人材(疫学研究者・行政関係者・予防マインドを持った臨床医や保健医療職種など)の育成を重視しています。
