Hello and welcome to the Virus Host Interaction Team! (VHIT)
MicroSoc, Edinburgh, 31 March 2020
VHIT's Clive McKimmie is an invited speaker in the session "Viruses that get under your skin – virus infections of skin and associated epithelia".
Would be great to see you there!
We are a dedicated group of researchers at the University of Leeds that investigate the complex and fascinating interactions that occur between disease-causing viruses and the mammalian host. We have a particular interest in viruses that are spread by arthropods, such as mosquitoes. These viruses are known as ‘arboviruses’ and represent an important class of emerging infections that constitute an increasing threat to human and animal health. Important arboviruses include Dengue virus, Chikungunya virus, West Nile virus and the Zika virus.
