Junki Maruyama, DVM, PhD
Molecular biology, viral pathogenesis, animal models of infectious diseases, vaccine/antiviral development, and diagnostics development.
My major passion for scientific research is in viral infectious diseases and their pathogenicity. Especially, I am interested in highly pathogenic viruses, such as Risk Group 4 agents, and the development of control methods against infectious diseases. Through my research experience, I believe that basic research is essential for the further development of countermeasures against viral infectious diseases. I have more than 13 years of experience in the field of viral pathogenesis with highly pathogenic viruses, such as highly pathogenic avian influenza virus, Ebola virus, Lassa virus, and SARS-CoV-2, which are needed to be handled in biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) or BSL-4 facilities.
