Tohoku University President Susumu Satomi recently held talks with his visiting counterpart from Case Western Reserve University, Barbara R. Snyder, to discuss further exchanges between the institutions.
The two presidents last met in July, when they signed a Memorandum of Understanding, setting up a joint degree program in the field of Data Science as part of Tohoku University's Top Global University Project.
Prior to this latest meeting in Sendai on November 12, Ms. Snyder and officials from CWRU visited the Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization, to observe the application of Big Data in medical science.
CWRU is located in the American state of Ohio. Since its formation in 1967, it has achieved great success in the fields of medicine and bioinformatics and is well known for using Data Science in most of its education fields.
