Overview

Dr. Ogino is Chief, Program in MPE Molecular Pathological Epidemiology of Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, developing the integrative interdisciplinary science of "Molecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE)". He is an associate member of Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. He has been serving as Chairperson for The International MPE Meeting Series since 2013. The 4th International Molecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE) Meeting is planned to be held on May 31 to June 1, 2018 in Boston, MA, USA.

Dr. Ogino's research has a broad theme: Integration of Molecular Pathology, Omics (Genomics), ​Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, and Population Health Science. Dr. Ogino's focus is to develop new scientific disciplines, and develop new data analysis framework and methodologies. The Ogino Lab uses gastrointestinal cancers as model human diseases (including colorectal carcinoma, colorectal polyp, colorectal adenoma, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine tumor, pancreatic endocrine tumor, carcinoid tumour). We have been analyzing germline and somatic genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, and immunomics in human tumors. Using massively parallel sequencing (next generation sequencing) technologies, the Ogino Lab has sequenced whole exome of over 1,000 colorectal carcinomas with high dimensional annotations, and calculated tumor neoantigen load. In addition, the Ogino Lab has obtained data on transcriptome of over 250 colorectal carcinomas (by RNA sequencing).

Dr. Ogino has created a number of new research frameworks, concepts, paradigms, and models, including molecular pathological epidemiology (MPE), the GWAS-MPE approach, the colorectal continuum model, the etiologic field effect model, the causal inference-MPE integration, lifecourse-MPE approach, social MPE, immuno-MPE (immunology-MPE integration), pharmaco-MPE, microbiology-MPE integration, MPE-comparative effectiveness research integration, and nutritional MPE.
