The MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) sits within the Institute of Infection, Immunology and Inflammation. The CVR is the largest virology-focussed research centre in the UK and brings together a critical mass of researchers studying human and animal viruses and viral diseases.
The CVR provides excellent facilities and opportunities for cross-disciplinary projects and the delivery of a comprehensive programme of training in contemporary, multi-disciplinary, virology research. The Centre includes research programmes in arboviruses, Epstein Barr virus, feline calicivirus, herpes viruses, hepatitis C virus, influenza, retroviruses and papillomaviruses.
Cross cutting research themes and expertise include:
- antiviral immunity
- virus discovery
- viral bioinformatics, mathematical modelling and genomics to guide new approaches to the understanding and management of viral infections
- structural biology/cryo-electron microscopy and viral evolutionary dynamics
- molecular virology to in vivo pathogenesis
- virus-cell interactions
- viral immunology
- viral ecology
- viral oncology
- clinical and veterinary virology
- viral diagnostics
- virus epidemiology
Our excellent facilities underpin a bench to bedside approach that will equip you with training complementary to a range of career options, and you can tailor your study pathway to the precise aspects of infection and immunology that suit your objectives. Through their research interests in drug development, vaccines and diagnostics, many of our project supervisors have strong links with industry.
