Group for supporting research using biospecimen
- Support for analyzing supersensitive molecular pathobiology system using biospecimen, constructing a network among relevant research institutions, and integrative omics analysis.
- Support for analyzing data on integrative omics using biospecimens.
- Support for collecting and providing human biospecimens (tissues and blood specimen) and its background information.
- Support for providing bioresouces of hematologic malignancy.
Group for supporting research using biospecimen supports two areas: one is to promote the bottom-up research based on the systematic understanding of biomolecular dynamics in humans covering the fields in life sciences overall, another is to facilitate the development from the research result to the applied research. Both support programs provide analysis support using biospecimen and provide human biospecimen.
1. Group for supporting analysis and methods of biomolecular dynamics and biomarker using human biospecimen
Our support includes mainly “support for analyzing supersensitive molecular pathobiology system using biospecimen, constructing a network among relevant research institutions”, and “integrative omics analysis using biospecimen”. We conduct analysis according to the request including supersensitive molecular pathobiology system analysis using biospecimen and the various omics analysis (Digital PCR System, Next Generation Sequencers, all sorts of transcriptome analysis, all sorts of proteomics analysis, microarray data on 13 cancers) that require our precise background information for the bio-functional molecules and biomarkers of the applicant’s interest.
Also we support to construct a network among relevant research institutions, and we support to provide training opportunity for learning analysis method on a single molecular.
2. Support Group for collecting and providing human biospecimen
We conduct two support programs: one is “collecting and providing human biospecimens (tissues and blood specimen) and its background information” and another is “support for providing bioresouces of hematologic malignancy”. We provide our resources such as about 20,000 samples in total of frozen tumor tissues, paraffin-embedded tissues, blood plasma, and blood serum mostly from the cancer patients, as well as about 10,000 samples from HTLV-1 infected patients under the condition of the appropriate ethic management and the division of roles. Also we provide pathological support organized by the expert pathologists.
We are open to discussion at any time about analysis support and providing support. We select on the basis of the content upon proceedings.
