CD4+ and CD8+ T cells play a crucial role in eliminating virus-infected cells and controlling viral replication during viral infection. However, kinetics and characteristics of T cell responses to newly emerging viruses have not been clearly elucidated. CEP investigates phenotypes and functions of T cells reactive to newly emerging viruses in patients and uninfected individuals.

Research Topics
  • Phenotypic and functional characterization of T cells reactive to newly emerging viruses.
  • Investigation of roles for T cells in severe and critical viral disease.
  • Understanding of cross-reactive T cells in uninfected individuals
Key Technology
  • Multicolor flow cytometry
  • Functional immunology
  • Immunopathogenesis
  • Heterologous (heterosubtypic) immunity
