We focus on infectious diseases which we have to prepare for outbreak in post disaster period. Our research themes are to develop diagnosis and treatment using host immune response to pathogens, and to analyze how environment change, such as nature, social infrastructure and life-style, will affect outbreaks.

Through our research we will investigate natural history of infectious disease outbreak from both cell level and behavioral level. Our goal is to contribute establishing quick and effective response to infectious disease of post-disaster period in recourse limited settings.
