Virology

Virology research in our Department is closely aligned with complementary programs in the Division of Infectious Diseases, the Department of Genetics, the Lineberger Cancer Center, the Center for Gene Therapy, the School of Public Health, and the Dental School. Virology in the Department has a strong emphasis on HIV, viral oncogenesis (Herpesviruses, HPV and HIV), emerging RNA viruses (Flavi, Corona, Alpha, and Orthomyxoviruses), and global health. The School of Medicine and the Department have established permanent research partnerships in Lilongwe, Malawi and Leon, Nicaragua, as well as other active collaborations in many parts of Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
