Our group is based at the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine and the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research, which are located on the Gilmorehill and Garscube Campuses (about 15 minute apart by bike) of the University of Glasgow. This creates cross-cutting research environment that allows group members to do everything from wet lab work, to bioinformatics, to ecology and epidemiology.
