Key Laboratory of Pathogen Biology of Jiangsu Province was formed in 1993 as part of the School of Basic Medical Sciences. Research in the Laboratory is focused on basic research into the newly emerged and reemerged infectious diseases that pose serious threat to public health. Our research and educational programs incorporate cutting-edge multidisciplinary approaches to understand microbial pathogens and the host immune defenses which protect against these organisms. Current research emphasizes, but is not limited to, studies in the fields of Immunology, Microbiology, Parasitology and Virology.
