Special Interview:



The Importance of International Communication Recognized While Working at WHO

I mainly study tropical diseases which are transmitted by arthropod such as mosquitos and ticks. My mission as a researcher is to find out how viruses like dengue fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, West Nile fever, yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis are spread, what kind of diagnostic agent or vaccine to develop, and ultimately how to provide these so as to rapidly contain an infectious disease.
