My research areas include:
(1) Microbiology and molecular biology of Helicobacter pylori     
(2) Transfusion transmitted viral infections.  For the first area the major goals are to identify virulence factors of the bacterium associated with different  clinical diseases. The techniques of phage expression library, transposon shuttle mutagenesis and DNA microarrays are currently used.  For the second area a well characterised cohort is adopted for evaluation of incidence ,clinical outcome, and implication for blood donor screening  in transfusion associated viral infections.
