Hunting emerging pathogens

The multidisclipinary viral zoonoses research unit at University of Helsinki is led by Professor Olli Vapalahti. Our research focuses on emerging and re-emerging infections – particularly viral zoonoses, including arboviruses. We study their evolution, epidemiology, diagnostics, ecology and host-virus interactions from molecular to population level.
