Members of the Animal Infection and Immunity group in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science study infectious diseases affecting a wide range of different animal species (including livestock, companion animals, wildlife, birds and fish). Particular emphasis is placed on interactions between pathogen and host, an understanding of which can lead to the development of measures to prevent disease (vaccines and other therapeutics) and improved diagnostics.
Genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics
Development of advanced tissue culture models
Experimental immunology: phage therapy, vaccine development and testing.
