              The research project of “Establishment of Integrative Multi-level Systems Biology and its Applications” has been adopted as a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan.  This is the five years project from FY2010 to FY2015.  With the use of mathematical model derived from the physiological theory or concept, we try to quantitatively describe the systems of function of life. Now we call our project “HD Physiology project”. HD primary means High-Definition, and it also means Human Disease or Hierarchically Designed. As for the details of this project, please refer the page of “About HD Physiology”.
