Infectious diseases still have been a fatal threat to children, worldwide. To solve the problem, we have been studying on pediatric virology. In particular, we focus on the mechanisms of viral entry into cells and the inhibition of entry by compounds, peptides, glycans, and antibodies, using a combination of virological and structural biological approaches. Our major goals are the elucidation of viral pathogenesis and the development of preventive and therapeutic methods for viral diseases.
