Summary of Activity

Zoonosis exists around us, and influences on our health and foods. We aim to conquer the zoonosis, research on the parasite infection as follows is now being carried out.

Research Subject

  • ・ New strategy on peptide vaccination therapy of Toxoplasma gondii.
  • ・ Defense mechanism against intestinal nematodes.
  • ・ Enterobacterial flora and colon cancer.
  • ・ Zoonosis

Outlook for Research

Prevention of a severe disease such as congenital toxoplasmosis is a goal of our study.
