Viral infectious diseases remain an important cause of human morbidity and mortality. This training program provides deep knowledge in the study of viruses: structural biology and biochemistry; studies of DNA replication, damage, and repair; RNA science; immunobiology; cell biology; microbial pathogenesis; genetics and evolution; bioinformatics and computational biology; epidemiology; and infectious disease research. The role of molecular detection, identification and typing or fingerprinting of viruses has shifted gradually from the academic world to the routine diagnostic laboratory.
The goals of this training program are to provide trainees with a thorough background in the fundamentals of virology in the context of modern molecular biology, genetics, cell biology and immunology; and to provide each trainee with an intensive exposure to laboratory research, utilizing current methods in molecular and cellular biology.
