Division of Innate Immune Regulation

Head:Satoshi Uematsu | Fourth Building 3F


Our division conducts functional analysis of intestinal innate immune cells, development of next-generation mucosal vaccine, and analysis of intestinal microbiota. We will develop immunoregulatory methods that target intestinal natural immune cells and create new treatments for dysbiosis related diseases that modulate the microbiota.

Division of Mucosal Symbiosis

Head:Yoshiyuki Goto | Fourth Building 3F


We aim to clarify the interplay between gut microorganisms and host epithelia and immune cells, and work on the development of new therapeutic approaches for infectious diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, metabolic diseases, cancer and neurological diseases. We also aim at the development of new technology to optimize the vaccine effect by identifying the intestinal microbes which contribute to activation of host immunity and clarifying the mechanism of activation of immune cells by these microbes.
