Its scope encompasses:

  • Antiviral drugs, antibodies and host-response modifiers, including their synthesis, in vitro and in vivo testing and mechanisms of action;
  • New or improved vaccines against viral infections of humans and animals;
  • Assessments of drug and vaccine safety;
  • Evolution of drug- or vaccine-resistant viruses and the development of effective countermeasures;
  • Identification and validation of new drug targets;
  • Laboratory animal models of viral diseases;
  • Pathogenesis of viral diseases and mechanisms of viral evasion of host immune responses.
