Research Area

Antiviral monoclonal antibody generation: based on functional screening by virus-infection cell model, recombinant antigen reactivity and et. al, centering the interest on HIV neutralizing monoclonal antibody, esp. recognizing wide-spectrum and/or immunodominant regions.

Virus antigen investigation associated with key epitopes: preparation of antigen or particulate antigen harbouring interest functional epitope.
