   The Laboratory of Immunoregulation and Vaccine Research in NIBIO and Division of Immunoregulation in Mie University Graduate School of Medicine were established by Dr. Yasuhiro Yasutomi (Director of Tsukuba Primate Research Center, Professor of Mie University Graduate School of Medicine) in 2007. We focus on disease control and elucidation of pathological mechanisms by using vaccines in various diseases such as infectious and immunological disorder diseases. Our projects are performed using not only small laboratory animals but also non-human primates in molecular and cellular immunological studies.
