Roy Hall

Professor Roy Hall’s research is in the study of the structure and function of flavivirus proteins, specifically West Nile virus and Chikungunya virus.

Prof. Hall is interested in the role of these proteins in viral pathogenesis and their potential as targets for antivirals.

These studies have recently led to the development of novel vaccine candidates and potential immunotherapy agents.

Another major theme of Prof. Hall’s research is viral ecology and epidemiology to aid the development of novel reagents and methodologies to enhance the accuracy and effectiveness of flavivirus and alphavirus detection and diagnosis.
