  • Dr Janet Daly

    Emerging viruses of veterinary and human interest (e.g. influenza viruses and flaviviruses). Dr Daly's main research interests are in emerging and re-emerging RNA viruses, particularly zoonotic viruses such as influenza A viruses and the flaviviruses (Dengue, Japanese encephalitis, West Nile and Zika) but also including, orthobunyaviruses more recently.She studies the complex interactions between viruses and their host to try to better understand determinants of viral pathogenicity. She also has an interest in factors influencing interspecies transmission and the use of mathematical models to further understanding of disease transmission.Dr Daly has appeared on radio (BBC Material World) and regional TV news programmes in the UK and Croatia. She has also written for lay publications such as Horse and Hound magazine. Janet is also a mountaineer and dog lover.
