Virology

The Virus Research Group investigates the pathology, natural history and molecular biology of persistent viral infections. Current research programmes focus on the pathology and treatment of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infections. The group's research aims are to provide a better understanding of virus-host interactions, and to develop novel anti-viral interventions. The University shares close links with clinical virologists at the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and is part of the Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre Biomedical Research Unit, which translates laboratory research findings directly into the clinical research environment. This research programme is currently developing novel treatments for viral hepatitis.
