The mission of the Molecular Virology is to facilitate the acquisition of new insights into virus biology and cellular function through the study of viruses and to develop novel approaches
An effective immune response can eliminate most viruses from the body and thus most viral infections are short lived. However, there are certain viruses that can evade the immune response and establish persistent infections in their host. The most famous example of such a virus is HIV, but there are many others. Viruses use a variety of strategies to evade the immune system. overall, these persistent infections are asymptomatic and only manifest clinically if the patient becomes immuno-compromised.to inhibit viral infection or treat viral diseases.
