The Research Unit on Virology consists of two interconnected research groups of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) led by Juana Díez (Molecular Virology) and Andreas Meyerhans (Infection Biology), respectively. The unit focuses on a broad range of theoretical and experimental knowledge in Virology, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Immunology, Animal Experimentation and Molecular Dynamics Simulation.
The main research lines are:
- Molecular interactions of viruses with their host cells.
- Systemic virus/host interactions.
- Broad-spectrum antiviral drug development.
