Welcome to the Flinders Virology on-line home page.

A Joint initiative between the College of Medicine and Public Health and College of Science and Engineering

This page aims to bring together all the useful links to other sites for people who are currently studying or interested in studying Virology at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia.

Research: Below are staff members at Flinders University who conduct research with a Virology focus

Projects are also offered for honours studies through the College of Medicine and Public Health and the College of Science and Engineering.

Teaching: Microbiology, with a focus on bacteria, is taught from staff in the College of Science and Engineering in the context of both medically and environmentally focussed topics.  Microbiology is also taught from the College of Medicine and Public Health with the focus of topics on medically significant microbes and their interaction with the human immune system.  Further information on topics with a significant Virology content are indicated.

There are a number of other groups and conferences of interest to post-graduates and staff with an interest in virology.

We hope these pages will enhance your learning experience at Flinders University and drive your interest in the field of Virology
