[Challenge 2]

Prevention and treatment of infectious diseases

Challenges in the development of a comprehensive research promotion system for quickly developing and spreading options for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, etc. of emerging/re-emerging infectious diseases

Contribution to the establishment of a national research base for investigating infectious diseases from a long-term perspective in life sciences such as pathogenic microbiology, immunology, and clinical medicine

Prof.
TAKEDA Kiyoshi

By promoting interdisciplinary research, increase understanding of the human immune system and build a base for developing options for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, etc. of infectious diseases

●Need to understand the human immune system in order to understand the biological defense mechanism against infectious diseases

●Thanks to the technological improvement of instruments, advanced instrumentation science has enabled the prediction of the human immune system based on basic immunology

Conventional

CiDER

1. Elucidation of the basic principle of biological defense system in humans

2. Elucidation of the immune response mechanism against pathogenic microorganisms

3. Basic study of pathogenic microorganisms and development of control methods

Build a base enabling the prompt development and common use of actions, preventive measures, and treatments during the outbreak of an infectious disease

Action Plan 1
Promotion / improvement of information dissemination and infection literacy
(knowledge)
Action Plan 2
Development of infectious disease research base focusing on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, etc.
Action Plan 3
Education and training for healthcare workers and cultivation of leaders in infectious disease control
