About Us

Infectious Diseases Hub aims to provide up-to-date, essential research and information on all aspects of virology and microbiology, from bench to bedside.

Microbiology has inevitably been impacted by the genomic revolution, and virology and genomic research have been closely linked for many years. It is now possible to determine viral-host interactions during infection in an unprecedented level of detail, providing a complete catalogue of potential antiviral targets for investigation.

Additionally, the availability of both human and microbial genome sequences allows scientists to better understand exactly how microbes interact with the hosts they infect, and how an individual’s genetic make-up influences their susceptibility to pathogens.

ID Hub aims to deliver the news, peer-reviewed articles, interviews and exclusive comment from KOLs on the areas that interest you, as well as providing easily-digestible multi-media content and a disease tracker to allow you to follow the latest disease outbreaks and related research.

Join our free online knowledge hub to be the first to know what’s impacting in your area of interest.

Coverage includes:

  • The molecular basis of microbial and viral diseases
  • Microbe–host and virus–host interactions
  • Overviews highlighting optimal therapeutic and diagnostic approaches, along with potential future options
  • The use of microbes in the treatment of disease and genetic engineering
  • The use of viral vectors in gene therapy and functional genomics
  • Summaries evaluating newly approved antimicrobial and antiviral agents
  • Vaccine development and the prevention of viral diseases
  • Adverse events and drug safety
  • Pharmacoeconomics and cost–benefit issues
  • New and re-emerging microbes and viruses
  • DNA microarrays for the identification of new viruses
