Clinical Virology and Virus Discovery
Virus infections impose a huge disease burden on humanity, from common colds to pandemic outbreaks, chronic virus infections, and cancer. Diagnosing viral agents and searching for the cause for diseases with unknown aetiology is therefore fundamental to many aspects of clinical medicine. The group is based at the Department of Clinical Microbiology at Karolinska University Hospital, and the research is focused on discovery of viruses and diagnostic studies on clinical samples.
