Our researches include the following topics: asthma, pathogenesis of Vibrio vulnificus, immune surveillance on cancer, gene therapy, Chinese herb medicine, and healthy food. etc. In addition to each professor's research projects supported by the National Science Council or the National Health Research Institutes, group research teams are formed to strong competition and to achieve an efficient use of limited research resources.

1. Dengue virus research team: The dengue virus of all four serotypes have found among dengue infection in Taiwan. Since there is a possibility of dengue infection of different serotypes, the risk of developing dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) or dengue shock syndrome (DSS) is increasing. The objective of this project is to study the pathologic mechanism of Dengue virus infection, especial the dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome on the aspects of molecular biology, immunology, and virology.

2. Group streptococcus research team An "old" bacterium (group A Streptococci) has emerged as a "new" severe infection. Prof. Y.S. Lin has organized a team, sponsored by NHRI, to study the pathogenic role of GAS from the aspects of bacterial genetics, invasion, immunology, and functional and structural studies of this protease.

3. Enterovirus 71 and SARS research group. This is in conjunction with the formation of the Institute of infection disease and signal transduction. Please seehttp://proj.ncku.edu.tw/infectious/index.htm for more details.

4. Cancer research group focuses primarily in the disease progression of prostate cancer, as well as signal transduction pathways and therapeutic measures.

 Future Prospects

1.Form new research teams to focus on local diseases and elevate our research capability and levels.

2.Emphasize the development of advanced biotechniques and their application in Clinical practices and moreover to discover new anticancer drugs.

3.Integrate our resources and main powers on important research issues and fully support their development.

4. Establish our research reputation and academic authority in focused topics.
