University of Liverpool
The course encompasses the studies of the pathogenicity, diagnostics, identification, epidemiology and immune responses to a range of viral pathogens including: Japanese encephalitis virus, HIV, respiratory syncytial virus, cytomegalovirus and other herpesviruses, chicken metapneumovirus, feline calicivirus and Schmallenberg virus. Techniques used include: diagnostic identification methods, flow cytometry, ELISA, epidemiology, PCR and transcriptomic and genomic technologies, including metagenomics, resequencing and genotyping cell separation, proteomics and infection models. The aims of the research 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 and animals.
The normal entry requirement is a good first degree in a relevant scientific subject.
