Outline Activities
Research: I am working on microbial researches based on genome analyses toward the understanding of genetic features of human and animal pathogens and commensals and their pathogenicity and evolution, which include the analyses of microbial communities such as intestinal microbial flora. I am also promoting the application of research outcomes to the development of tools for diagnosis and epidemiology of bacterial infections. Education: I am teaching on bacteriology and microbial genomics for under and graduate students in medical school. Others: I am working as a board member of Japanese Society for Bacteriology and the president of its Kyushu branch, PO of AMED/NBRP, editors of 3 journals (Microbial genomics, DNA Research , Microbiology & Immunology).
Research Interests
  • Genome analysis of a variety of pathogenic and commensal bacteria from human animals. Genome analysis of bacterial communities, such as bacterial flora of the intestinal tract. Development of new molecular tools for diagnosis and molecular epidemiology. Clinical sequencing of bacterial strains from suspected outbreaks.
