Research Summary

Ken-ichi  Masuda(Ph.D.) Takashi Saito

Vaccination is the effective method as protection from pathogenic infection and prevention of severe symptoms, which has been widely used. However, currently emerging infectious diseases are sometimes difficult to develop an effective vaccine with conventional methods. We will develop vaccines for those emerging infectious diseases using synthetic peptides selected based on information of bioinformatics.
