Mission of WPI-Bio2Q

Human health is maintained by complex interactions between multiple organs. These interactions include the microbiome, which exists on every external surface of the body, and the resulting information is processed and utilized in a coordinated manner.

Our center will develop novel research techniques to understand the interactions between multiple organs and the microbiome and develop methods to apply quantum computing to human biology. Our mission is to forge a new interdisciplinary research area that will lead to groundbreaking progress in elucidating the regulatory mechanisms sustaining human health. In the long term, we will develop new prophylactic/therapeutic approaches to promote healthy longevity.
