Welcome to Department of Infectious Diseases

    The National Center for Global Health and Medicine is a medical research center that evaluates emerging and re-emerging infections. In this era of increased global movements of people and international trade in foodstuffs, infectious diseases spread rapidly throughout the world. Rapid diagnosis and treatment, as well as infection control to minimize the risk of infectious transmission, are very important for hospitals that accept patients with severe infectious diseases.

    Our department performs clinical and basic research on important human infectious diseases. We focus on pandemic influenza, TB, severe invasive streptococcal infection, enterohemorrhagic infection and nosocomial infections, such as multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

    This research section is divided into four sub-sections: Infectious Diseases, Bacterial Infection, Pathogenic microbe laboratory, and Animal Models.
