Our research projects are mainly focused on avian influenza virus as representative of avian zoonoses:
- Molecular basis for the generation of pandemic influenza viruses
- Surveillance of avian influenza virus in migratory birds
- Generation mechanism of highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses
- Participating in a project entitled gEpidemiological surveillance of avian influenza viruses in poultry in Vietnam after vaccinationh within the Program of Formation Research Centers for Emerging and Reemerging Infectious Diseases, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Technology, Japan.

- Conducting research on pathogenicity of highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses for wild bird and poultry species.
- Aiming at elucidating molecular basis of influenza viruses to acquire high pathogenicity for chickens.
- Conducting continuous avian-flu surveillance in wet-markets and farms in Vietnam.
