Our research bridges our strengths in laboratory-based enquiry using molecular genetics, metagenomics, biochemistry, cell biology, bioinformatics and structural biology, with rich clinical resources in microbiology, virology, sexually transmitted diseases and clinical trials.
Current projects cover areas that include HIV/AIDS, Ebola, influenza, parvoviruses, Shigella and transmission networks of drug-resistant microbes.
We provide high-quality teaching and training to the next generation of researchers in virology, clinical infectious diseases and diseases treatment.
We are home to the Infectious Diseases BioBank serving as a centralised specimen deposit for archiving and molecular analysis that assists researchers wishing to undertake cohort-based projects in areas such as HIV/AIDS, HCV infection or MRSA.
The Agromayor Lab is part of the Department of Infectious Diseases
We use diverse, integrated techniques and approaches from cell culture, virology, molecular biology, biochemistry and bioinformatics to uncover novel innate inhibitors and dependency factors of HIV, Influenza, SARS-CoV-2, and other viruses.
The Doores Lab is in the Department of Infectious Diseases
The Fox Group works on combined HIV adolescent prevention and investigating COVID-19 infectiousness and antibody evolution in COVID-19 patients in Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe.
The Galao Lab studies host/virus interactions, focusing mainly in innate immune responses to infection by RNA viruses.
A Lipids and Membranes Research Interest Group
The Malim lab is part of the Department of Infectious Diseases
We investigate how mRNA translation is regulated during inflammation and infection responses.
The Mischo Lab studies how gene expression can be controlled through the modulation of transcription termination.
The Odendall Group is based in the Department of Infectious Diseases
We employ advanced single molecule imaging approaches to understand enveloped virus fusion mechanics. We use a highly interdisciplinary approach that combines, virology, molecular biology, advanced biophysics live cells imaging and single molecule spectroscopy to define virus fusion molecular machines. In particular we investigate a number of enveloped viruses during the first steps of infection (virus entry and fusion) that comprise Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 (HIV-1), Ebola (EBOV) and SARS Corona viruses (SARS CoV 2).
RNA is at the forefront of biomedical research for its central role in how information is transferred from DNA to protein. This Research Interest Group is open to all interested parties from across the University.
The Schurich Lab studies the function of human T cells, with a focus on T cell metabolism to understand how T cells fuel their extraordinary effector capacity.
