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 Clinical Vaccinology
Head:Kohtaro Fujihashi | Fourth Building 3F
To explore new avenues for mucosal vaccine development, investigators have begun to employ novel adjuvants and targeting mucosal tissues and immune cells for vaccine delivery. Despite recent advanced sciences, it still remains to develop effective mucosal vaccines for human use. To this end, our main task is to define the effectiveness and safety of novel mucosal vaccines including adjuvant- and delivery system-development, and bring them from bench-top to practical applications.

Division of Mucosal Vaccine is conducting research and development for mucosal vaccine development. Our scientific interests and focuses are mucosal immune system which is tightly regulated and influenced by environmental, dietary, and microbial factors. With this clarified and understood, we aim to develop nove vaccine and adjuvant for vaccination against infectious diseases, cancer, allergy and other immunological disorders.

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.
