Study of host responses to newly emerging viruses at a single-cell levels
Each virus has its own characteristics and elicits host responses in its own way. In order to respond to newly emerging and re-emerging viruses, we need to know host responses to each virus at a single-cell level. CEP performs single-cell RNA sequencing analysis using blood leukocytes obtained from patients with various viral infections.
- Single-cell RNA sequencing analysis of blood leukocytes from patients with various viral diseases.
- Identification of gene signatures specific to each viral disease.
- Development of a screening platform for re-purposing of inflammation-modifying agents.
- Functional genomics
- Single-cell analysis
- Systems immunology
- Platform for drug re-purposing
