The devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami killed thousands and flattened a wide swath of the peninsula, and in the process destroyed much of theTohoku University. Thomson Reuters recently announced that we have partnered with the Tohoku University Tohoku Medical Megabank (ToMMo) to help restore the region’s medical system and help its medical community with an important research study.

 

ToMMo, which was established in February 2012, is initiating a state-of-the-art research platform to support a three-generation research study to record the changing health of families over the course of 10 years. The study is designed to understand the causal relationships between disease, environment and genetics.

 

ToMMo believes the study will help build higher-quality medical services that are adapted to a patient's genetic traits.

As part of the study, ToMMo is building a biobank to store health information, medical records, clinical test data, blood samples and other data.
