We are developing new technologies to visualize biophysical and physiological functions inside the living body, especially to visualize human brain function. Further, we aim to reveal mechanisms of such individual bio-phenomena through animal experiments.
[Satoshi Sasayama (Associate Professor)]
We are conducting various data analysis and information system development by utilizing statistics and ergonomics. Specifically, we are constructing a pathogenic bacteria database, an e-Learning system, and some interactive learning materials in the fields of health science.

[Akitoshi Seiyama (Professor)]
We are developing new technologies to visualize biophysical and physiological functions inside the living body. In vivo molecular imaging, an important technique in the post-genome strategy, has the potential to visualize the dynamics of individual bio-phenomena processes in cells, organs as well as in the living body. We aim to reveal mechanisms of such individual bio-phenomena in the living body through bio-imaging using MRI, Near-IR optical imaging and electrophysiological techniques.
[Satoshi Sasayama (Associate Professor)]
We are constructing a pathogenic bacteria database (PBDB) to provide the basic knowledge on bacteriology not only to the researchers and specialists on microbiology but also to students and general public through the Internet. This system serves picture information, such as high-quality images of bacteria and of analysis materials, moving images with narration of assay procedures, and so on. We are also constructing an e-Learning system, and some interactive learning materials intended for students and alumni of health science.
