Our main research subjects   
Development of novel bacterium-tracking antimicrobials
         (Bacteriophage technology)
    2.  Pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance in Staphylococcal
        species, especially in Staphylococcus aureus
          (We now have more than 15,000 S. aureus collections
           from about 25 countries)
    3.  Drug resistance in GN pathogens
    4.  Bacteriophage applications
Infection control science
    (Note: Three AMED programs and
                   one Moonshot programe are included

   1. Development of a novel bacterium-tracking antimicrobial therapy against antimicrobial-resistant bacteria


  2a. Heterogeneity of bacterial populations and its impact on the chronic persistent infection in human


 2b. Antibiotic resistance in staphyloccocal species, especitally in Staphylococcus aureus


 3. Drug resistance in GN pathogenes

    We also research on antibiotic resistance of opportunistic pathogens including K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa and A. baumannii, etc.

 4. Severe invasive infection by group A streptococci


 5. Infection control science

    In collaboration with clinical laboratory, our group supports infection control management in university teaching hospital by carrying out basic study and laboratory surveillance.
