A key component of NTT’s long-term goal to individualize and revolutionize healthcare is through NTT Research’s bio digital twin initiative, which seeks to address the increasing complexity of underlying diseases while helping to determine the best current remedies from among an ever-increasing range of therapeutic options. Led by Dr. Joe Alexander, who was recently named the director of the Medical & Health Informatics (MEI) Lab, the development of the bio digital twin is informed by a vast array of biological, physiological, genomic, phenotypic and health records data – as well as data gleaned from wearable devices and sensors.

“NTT aims to change the future for good by reimagining Health and Wellbeing,” said Kazuhiro Gomi, President and CEO of NTT Research. “Fundamental research is at the center of this change and our MEI Lab’s vision to facilitate improved health outcomes by empowering the application of a personalized, preventative, predictive and participatory practice of medicine strongly aligns with the goals of NTT’s Health and Wellbeing initiative.”

“We are at a transition point in our society where many governments, communities and organizations are evaluating a more holistic approach to Health and Wellbeing. This is clear in macro-trends such as health care innovation, hybrid work models, employee mobility and collaborative workplace models,” said Vito Mabrucco, Head of Global Marketing at NTT. “We feel that we can share some of our data and our experience to help organizations adjust to the post-pandemic world in a way that puts people, communities and workplace wellbeing first.”
