Tackling the global threat of viruses at the University of Glasgow

Understanding viruses is essential in keeping people and their communities safe.
The University of Glasgow is doing this at global scale.
Our award-winning Centre for Virus Research (CVR) has made fundamental discoveries to improve global health.
Its focus and range of multidisciplinary virology expertise and excellent facilities distinguish it from other virology research centres in the UK and Europe.
This means that researchers can address the challenges of known and novel viruses and viral diseases at a scale not otherwise achievable.
The Centre's critical mass of virologists are making a significant contribution to hepatitis C, dengue fever, herpes, influenza, rabies, bunyaviruses, Ebola and Zika virus.
Work also includes viruses infecting animals, such as cats, horses, or ruminants to know more about how they emerge and move from animals to humans.

THE EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY: VACCINES AND COVID-19
Date: Wednesday 17 February 2021
Time: 16:00-17:00 (GMT)
The first COVID-19 vaccinations in December were a powerful representation of an exceptional and historic endeavour: the development, authorization, production and delivery of novel vaccines in record time. With positive findings from additional vaccine clinical trials announced on the same day, for what seemed like the first time in 2020, headlines were optimistic and global stocks surged. The University of Glasgow is proud to have played a part in bringing the new vaccines into being. In the latest in our series of World Changing Glasgow Conversations, we bring together an expert panel to share how these vaccines have made this extraordinary journey and discuss what needs to happen next to ensure they can help bring the pandemic under control around the world. Alumni Rod MacKenzie, Ph.D. (Chief Development Officer and Executive Vice President) and John Young (Group President and Chief Business Officer) of Pfizer will be joined by Professor Iain McInnes leading Immunologist and the University’s Head of College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, and Professor Emma Thomson, Professor in Infectious Diseases in the University’s Centre for Virus Research. The event will be chaired by Rachel Sandison, Vice-Principal of External Relations at the University.
