About this project

 Under the Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology (FIRST Program), this project aims to develop the world’s highest performance mass spectrometry system. The system will be used to find biomarkers and candidate target molecules in order to establish new diagnostic and treatment methods for breast and esophageal cancer and for Alzheimer’s disease.

 When practical technologies become available in near future, the discovery research of new biomarkers for diagnostic and therapeutic use will be greatly accelerated to achieve healthier and longer life for all.
