Janet is an Associate Professor in Emergent Viruses at the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science. She has a track record of studying various aspects of zoonotic RNA viruses, working at both veterinary and human institutes and in the pharmaceutical industry.
Janet’s current research focusses on influenza A viruses and flaviviruses including dengue, Japanese encephalitis, West Nile and Zika viruses. She is interested in understanding how interactions between these viruses and different host species determine pathogenicity and interspecies transmission. She is also involved in projects to develop more specific serological assays and vaccines. She enjoys extensive international collaborations.
