The VIPER research and training program will cover the global chain of events involved in virus emergence, all the way from virus discovery, isolation, molecular characterization, surveillance, and pathogenesis, towards animal and public health impact and intervention strategies including new approaches for prevention and control.<br><br>The VIPER research projects are subdivided into three pillars:<br><br>virus discovery, host range and transmission<br>virus-host cell interactions and pathogenesis, and<br>immune interference and intervention strategies.
