Laboratory medicine is a field of research to develop analytical methods of pathophysiology of various diseases, new diagnostic tests, and diagnosis-supporting system using laboratory tests.
Our research subjects are as follows:
1) Cellular and molecular mechanism of abnormal growth of acute leukemia cells and drug-sensitivity tests for molecularly targeted thepapy
2) Molecular diagnostic tests for cancer and detection of minimal residual cancer cells
3) Mechanism of abnormal growth of lymphoma cells
4) Molecular diagnostic tests for infectious diseases
To graduates students, we provide opportunity to study and develop novel diagnostic tests using cellular and molecular biological techeque in our laboratories.
To undergraduate students, we give a lecture and practical training on laboratory medicine.
Lectures & Courses
Main objective of Laboratory Medicine in the graduate course is to provide students opportunity to study analysis of pathophysiology, development of new diagnostic tests, and establishment of diagnosis-supporting system using laboratory tests. We focus on the analysis of pathophysiology of hematological malignancies and the development of molecular diagnostic tests for cancer and infectious diseases.
Clinical Services & Other Works
We are performing laboratory tests for hematology, clinical chemistry, immunology, and microbiology in cooperation with doctors and technologists of clinical laboratory in University hospital. We give a lecture on laboratory tests at meetings of laboratory medicine-related societies.
We are developing new diagnostic methods collaborating with various clinical departments. We are also supporting them in their diagnostic procedure.
