HIV-1 virions

Studies on novel anti-HIV-1 agents

We are conducting research on the identification and development of new anti-HIV-1 drugs of which target molecules are different from existing anti-AIDS drugs, especially HIV-1 gene expression inhibitors.

Study on anti-adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) therapy

We are trying to identify novel molecules that selectively inhibit the proliferation of ATL cells.

Research on anti-hepatitis B virus compounds

To discover agents active against hepatitis B virus (HBV) replication with a novel mechanism of action, we are testing antiviral activity of various compounds in collaboration with several chemists in Japan and foreign countries.

Study on severe fever with thrombocytepenia syndrome (SFTS)

We are trying to identify novel molecules that selectively inhibit the replication of SFTSV, an etiologic virus of SFTS.

Identification and development of novel anti-SARS-CoV-2 drugs

We are conducting research on the identification and development of new anti-SARS-CoV-2 drugs for treatment of COVID-19 in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies.
