Who we are?

We are a very strong team for studying the viral genetics and the pathogenic roles of the giant virus. We use Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) as model. Our group leader, Dr. Ming-Han Tsai (蔡明翰) is exactly the person who had successfully constructed the five standard EBV strains (total 7 strains) in the world (including all the carcinoma EBV strains). Meanwhile, our PI has the strong collaboration with Prof. Dr. Delecluse at DKFZ/Germany, who established the elegant system to modify the EBV viral genome.

​We have strong collaboration with different research groups and hospitals in Taiwan and globally and wish to eradicate the cancers caused by EBV in the next decades. At first, we are focusing on the pathogenic roles of EBV in gastric cancer and we will expand our research toward other EBV-associated carcinomas. Importantly, EBV is the last major human tumor virus that is still barely understood; so far we still don't have drugs or vaccines against EBV.

Due to the strong techniques for constructing giant DNA virus, we are also genetically modifying these giant DNA viruses for different applications and seeking for the opportunities for the bio-pharmaceutical businesses. 

Our researches are kindly supported by MOST Young Scholar Fellowship for 5 years (哥倫布五年期計畫). We sincerely invite the highly motivated students to join our research team and enjoy the researches together!
