Professor of Emerging Viruses

Carroll Group: High Consequence Emerging Viruses Group


Our work centres around high consequence emerging viral infections. Currently, our focus is on Ebola, Lassa fever and SARS-CoV-2. We are interested in host-pathogen interactions, development of anti-virals and recently we have been looking at the IgG response following SARS-CoV-2 infection and/or vaccination in humans and animal models. To further support this work we are using a live virus neutralisation, multiplex immunoassays and novel ACE2 inhibition assay to inform on the ability of serum to neutralise SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VOC). We are also interested in the innate response to viral infection, particularly activation and/or evasion of the complement system
