Project

EpiViral is a Consortium between the University of Aveiro (UA), the Leiden Medical Center (LMU) and the Goethe University Frankfurt (GUF). Its main aim is to intensify, increase and consolidate the scientific research on Virology and RNA biology at the UA, by partnering with two leading institutions in these research fields.
This consortium will coordinate and promote networking activities between all the partners as well as promote dissemination of the knowledge produced by the collaborations established between the three participating institutions. It will furthermore support transnational access of UA researchers to state-of-the art infrastructures available at LMC and GUF. The project will explore how RNA viruses manipulate the host translation machinery, in an attempt to identify novel cellular targets for the development of innovative antiviral therapies.
