Infectious Disease Field Research

On infectious diseases which have significant importance from the public health point of view, the patient information will be collected and analyzed and pathogens will be identified from samples collected from clinical institutes and public health centers.
On the identified pathogens, source of infections and its infectious routes will be identified with molecular and epidemiological analysis, thus clarifying the extent of spread in Hyogo Prefecture and finally it is hoped to develop or improve new examination method.

Overseas Research Center
(Kobe University-affiliated Cooperative Research Center for Emerging and Reemerging Infectious Diseases (CRC-ERID))

As a part of its interdisciplinary project, Center for Infectious Diseases (CID) has established “Kobe University-affiliated Cooperative Research Center for Emerging and Reemerging Infectious Diseases (CRC-ERID)” in Tropical Disease Center, Airlangga University, Indonesia, in May 2007 under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology JAPAN and has been carrying out the research activities on infectious diseases.

In 2007, two Japanese researchers stationed at CRC-ERID and the collaborative research activities began. BSL3 laboratory was built to establish good research environment for P2 and P3 level analysis on H5N1 avian influenza and genetic analysis and sero-epidemiological study on viral Hepatitis B, C, and E is also performed using the laboratory equipments. In Japan, corresponding research has also been carried out.

This project is a part of collaborative project of CID and is organized by its Director. The main research theme are studies on H5N1 avian influenza and Viral Hepatitis B, C, and E.
