Artemis One Health
Human viruses with an animal reservoir
Zoonotic virus infections place a huge burden on society in terms of disease burden and mortality, and also in direct health service costs, drugs prescribed and the indirect costs related to productivity losses. Zoonotic viruses such as avian influenza virus and MERS-coronavirus, but also newly emerging viruses pose a constant threat to society. In addition to these respiratory viruses, Artemis is also studying ways to combat rabies virus infections, a virus that kills more than 60.000 people each year.
VIRUSES WE ARE WORKING ON AT ARTEMIS
The following viruses are being studied currently, embedded in several projects.
