Research theme

Virus infections are accompanied by numerous ultrastructural changes in viral and cellular components. Our laboratory has been investigating the replication mechanism of influenza and Ebola viruses mainly from the ultrastructural point of view, by using different microscopic methods such as electron microscopy and high-speed atomic force microscopy. Visualization and characterization of the virus life cycle at the nano-mesoscopic level give us unique knowledge and novel paradigms, which will advance our understanding of molecular basis of the replication mechanism.
