Upcoming Events

Hello and welcome to the Virus Host Interaction Team! (VHIT)


International Virtual Seminars on Arbovirus Biology

Chaired and organised by Tem Morrison (Colorado) and Clive McKimmie (VHIT, Leeds).

Great speakers bringing the best in arbovirus research

See out twitter profile for latest updates:

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, also known as arboviruses, 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.
