Research content My research work focuses on clarification of molecular mechanisms on the infection of pathogenic microorganisms to elicit infectious diseases in human and animals. I attempt to analyze functional mechanisms of pathogenic factors and host factors for pathogens by use of various molecular biological, biochemical and immunological techniques. Projects under investigation include ; (1) analysis of molecular structures and biological activities in toxins from Clostridium species, (2) development of rapid and specific diagnostic methods for infectious diseases using pathogenic factors as markers.
Keywords pathogenic microorganisms, diagnosis, infectious diseases, pathogenic factor

Special Lecture: Infectious Diseases Control C
Research content My research work focuses on enteric bacteria such as enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli, other diarrheagenic E. coli, Campylobacter spp. Vibrio spp. and Shigella spp. in terms of molecular epidemiology, analysis of pathogenic factors and antimicrobial resistances. My goal of the study is to develop rapid and simple diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive methods against these bacterial infections.

Special Lecture: Infectious Diseases Control C
Research content My research objectives are to understand the distribution of intestinal protozoa by genetical survey and to control the infection. From this point of view, my research work includes molecular epidemiology, development of molecular tools to assess their pathogenicity or host specificity, and clarification of host-parasite adaptation.

Research content Cytolethal distending toxin is one of the toxins produced by E. coli isolated from diarrheal patients and animals, and only genotoxin in bacterial toxins. My research is to elucidate the mode of action of CDT, and the pathogenicity of CDT producing E. coli using epidemiological, genetic and molecular approaches.
