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.

Research Topics
  • 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.
Key Technology
  • Functional genomics
  • Single-cell analysis
  • Systems immunology
  • Platform for drug re-purposing
