Mission and Goals

We aim to achieve information technology- and systems engineering- based medical advancement by training global engineers that are responsible for this innovation and by promoting industry–academia–government collaborations. We have 2 major objectives. First, we aim to develop a long-term project to create a computer model for the human physiology (Virtual Physiological Human). It will provide an intelligence infrastructure for medical research and the “seeds” required for medical development. Second, we should conduct problem-based research to match our “seeds” to the “needs” of medical schools, companies, and hospitals. This research creates computer-aided systems for drug design/development; disease diagnosis, prevention, and treatment; and patient care/welfare.
