4) Relationship between persistent bacterial infection and chronic inflammatory diseases such as adipose or diabetes
Lectures & Courses
Purpose of Education
The aim of our laboratory in the graduate course is to understand molecular mechanism of pathogen infection and host immune responses. Students also learn planning of research, experiments and methods for evaluating.
