Virology. Virus Pathogenesis and immune responses
My group's current research programme is centred on study of influenza A virus, respiratory syncytial virus and herpesviruses (e.g. Ovine herpesvirus 2) to study pathogenesis, immunology and virus-host interactions in the respiratory tract. These studies use virus reverse genetics combined with transgenic mouse technology, molecular pathology, transcriptomics and proteomics to dissect pathogenic mechanisms.
