Overview

Key Features

We also enjoy close and active collaboration with NHS colleagues through the Liverpool Health Partners Academic Health Science System.

Research in Virology is based in new laboratories in the Ronald Ross Building and ic2 Building on the main University city centre campus.  Our research encompasses studies of the pathogenicity, diagnostics, identification, epidemiology and immune responses to a range of viral pathogens including: flaviviruses such as Japanese encephalitis virus and Zika virus; Ebola virus; Chikungunya virus; HIV; respiratory syncytial virus; cytomegalovirus and other herpesviruses. Techniques used include: diagnostic identification methods, flow cytometry, ELISA, epidemiology, transcriptomic and genomic technologies, proteomics and infection models.

The aims of the Virology programme from University of Liverpool are to investigate the transmission routes and behaviour of pathogens during infections and use this knowledge to design better therapeutic strategies or vaccines in order to improve the health of humans.

Programme Structure

Our research in virology spans a wide range of different virus families, which are linked to a broad spectrum of clinical diseases.  These include the following areas:

  • Emerging and Zoonotic infections – Zika virus, Japanese encephalitis virus, Chikungunya virus, Ebola virus
  • Gastrointestinal infections – Rotavirus, Noravirus
  • Respiratory infections – Influenza virus, Respiratory syncytial virus
  • Blood borne viruses – Human Immunodeficiency virus, Hepatitis C virus
