About the Virology lab

The Joint Research Unit in “Virology” investigates zoonotic or epizootic virus of major human and veterinary public health importance. The scientific strategy includes fundamental questions regarding the biology of viral agents but also applied research on epidemiology, vaccinology and mechanisms of interactions between virus and host cell. As example, this unit evaluates original diagnostic tools for epidemiological surveillance and phylogenic studies of animal viruses. Special focuses are made on orbiviruses, picornaviruses, neurovirology of zoonoses, enteric viruses, species barriers, adenovirus-derived vectors and vaccines.
