Research Divisions

Department of Preventive Medicine

Division of Cancer Information and Control
Division of Cancer Information and Control We are conducting research using data from the cancer registry in Aichi Prefecture, Japan and others worldwide to accumulate information that would be useful for promoting cancer control.

Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention
遺伝子医療研究部 Our research is aimed at establishing effective cancer prevention methods by elucidating lifestyle factors, genetic factors, and their interactions in determining cancer risk.
Division of Molecular Genetics
分子遺伝学分野Our research is focused on the exploration and functional annotation of genes/variants related to cancer development/progression through genomic and epigenomic analyses.

Department of Molecular Carcinogenesis

Division of Pathophysiology
分子病態学部We are conducting research on tumor microenvironment, metastasis, and cancer cachexia at the whole-body level to enable the development of novel cancer therapies.
Division of Cancer Biology
