Department of Infectious Disease Control

Head:Yasushi Kawaguchi | General Research Building 3F


Our special interest is focused upon searching for effective methods to protect or control viral infection by using accumulated knowledge based on molecular pathogenicity, and developing novel anti-viral drugs and attenuated strains for novel vaccines. The works have been conducted by close collaboration with Division of Molecular Virology, Department of Microbiology and Immunology.

Division of Viral Infection,
Department of Infectious Disease Control

Head:Takeshi Ichinohe | Third Building 1F


We focus on understanding how influenza virus is recognized by innate immune systems and how the innate recognition receptor controls the virus-specific adaptive immune responses. Our recent focus also includes the study of how microbiota regulates adaptive immune responses to influenza virus infection. Our ultimate goal is to utilize the knowledge we gain through these areas of research in the rational design of effective intranasal vaccines.
