RESEARCH INTEREST

Focusing on studies of human B cell especially producing and engineering antibody against infectious disease for developing to be therapeutic drugs or vaccine and for using as diagnostic test kit, my research conducted has also been looking at the role of antibodies in the treatment of infectious disease and establish the techniques for large scale antibody production.

Previously, I have successfully generated fully human monoclonal antibodies against all serotypes of dengue virus which is one of the most important arthropod-borne viral diseases. These antibodies have become to be one of the candidates for immune therapy. Hence my ongoing research highlights on characterize these antibodies in aspect of immunological and pathophysiological activity. My future research plans are aimed toward others infectious diseases e.g. COVID-19, Chikungunya or Zika virus. My laboratory skills are molecular and immunological techniques and I also do phage display technique which is the technique for producing large amounts of peptides, proteins and antibodies.
