My Medicine

From Disease- to Humanity-care

Takebe Lab will move medicine into the new dimension so-called “My Medicine”, that pushes humanity towards a better life.

By bringing research and innovation, we’re dedicated to evolving, alleviating and treating humanity today and in the future. Our lab commits to nurture the respect, integration, visualization and sharing in our diverse community.


Imagination that Creates

We respect the “zero” field, where science has not fully explored yet today. Creation from zero is always a risk and takes tremendous courage to commit and accept the outcome. This ability to make a conscious, risky, decision is unique to humanity, and we, as scientist, should exploit it.

1. Imagine, Small.

2. Involve, Friends.

3. Inspire, People.

Think weird, crazy, small idea, constantly, and ideate the simplest experiment. 

Define what you cannot do, then find collaborators. Interact people with different culture and expertise. 

Amplify your small idea, and visualize its potential and promise that inspires.


The goal of our laboratories is to conduct basic research and discovery to commit to next-gen medicine with four major areas of interests include: 

(1) model and manipulate humanity in model systems
(2) understand variations and deviations of humanity  
(3) prevent, alleviate and treat diseases of humanity

Some of our core capability includes:

  • human stem cell culture
  • animal model system
  • gene editing and genomics
  • robotics and automation
  • drug screening
  • deep learning
  • design and art

CCHMC Lab investigates the mechanisms of organogenesis and pathogenesis in humans, translated into in-a-dish engineering principles for complex organoid system.
