Infectious Disease & Immunology


Infectious Disease & Immunology

  • Molecular pathogenesis of infectious diseases (including viruses, such as hepatitis B and C viruses, enterovirus 71, Japanese encephalitis virus, dengue virus, HIV, influenza virus, bacteria, and protozoan parasites)
  • Studies of virus replication, assembly, budding and egress, microbe-host interaction and microbe-related inflammation.
  • Studies of immune-related human diseases [e.g., asthma, IBD, and EAE (multiple sclerosis)] using mouse models
  • Investigations of mucosal immunity, innate immunity, and cytokine/chemokine biology
