In this role you will work in a high-tech laboratory environment with the latest techniques and innovations. Your focus will be on cellular based virology assays in the Clinical Virology Department. You will work on world-class clinical intervention studies of the top pharmaceutical companies. This position allows you to develop yourself into a virology specialist.

 

Tasks & responsibilities

You will be working within our clinical department on a wide variety of tasks, including:

  • Virological, immunological and in some occasions molecular assays, such as virus titration, neuraminidase inhibition, plaque assays, haemagglutination inhibition, neutralizing antibodies, CMI and our in-house developed innovative Virospot Assays.

  • Focused on quality, attention to detail;
  • Result oriented;

ViroSpot MN assay, a novel tool for antigenic characterization of influenza viruses and serology

Selecting vaccine strains that match circulating influenza viruses antigenically remains an annual challenge. Vaccine mismatch [e.g., for recent A(H3N2) viruses] has contributed to reduced vaccine effectiveness. Reduced vaccine effectiveness not only may affect public health, but also causes economic losses due to absenteeism from work. Vaccine mismatches also fuel the ongoing debate about the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine.
