How vampire bats are supporting virus research
(Charit é - Universit ä tsmedizin Berlin) A new research project underway at Charit é -- Universit ä tsmedizin Berlin is investigating how, and under what conditions, viruses can persist inside the body and remain capable of triggering new infections. As part of this endeavor, the researchers are studying the nature of virus-host interactions in vampire bats with a new type of Morbillivirus, the genus of viruses to which the human measles virus belongs. The project is being funded by the Human Frontier Science Program.
