Virología ambiental y biomédica: aplicaciones de bacteriófagos y otros virus en salud global - EnBiVir

Referencia del grupo:

GIUV2020-485

 
Descripción de la actividad investigadora:

The Environmental and Biomedical Viruses Lab is located at the Insitute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio, UV-CSIC). Research at the EnBiVir lab is focused in the isolation and detection of viruses in nature with biomedical applications. Environmental virology, viral emergence, virus evolution, and phage discovery in the biomedical context, are the main research lines. Phages are ubiquitous in the environment and immensely diverse, making phage discovery a powerful source of new therapies against pathogenic bacteria, due to the emergence of multidrug-resistant strains. In addition, the lab is interested in environmental epidemiology, mainly in SARS-CoV-2 detection in wastewater and other natural environments, as a tool for monitoring populations and as early detection tool in surveillance. In addition, the group is interested in translational research, and has transfer contracts with national companies with biomedical and biotech purposes.
