Retrovirus Research Laboratory

The Retrovirus Research Laboratory is situated in the Henry Wellcome Building for Comparative Medical Sciences,  University of Glasgow. Our main interests are the ways in which retroviruses cause disease, the immune response to infection and the development of veterinary vaccines. Much of our work focuses on the feline retroviruses, FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and FeLV (feline leukaemia virus). We also have research projects focusing on the development of novel adjuvants for companion animal vaccination, feline calici virus (FCV), lyssaviruses (rabies) and viruses of non-domestic cats such as lions and pumas. If you have any feedback regarding our site e-mail us at: Retrovirus Research Laboratory.
