Scientific Papers
The molecular epidemiology of multiple zoonotic origins of SARS-CoV-2
As 2019 turned into 2020, a coronavirus spilled over from wild animals into people, sparking what has become one of the best documented pandemics to afflict humans.
Scientific Papers
Mosaic RBD nanoparticles protect against challenge by diverse sarbecoviruses in animal models
The COVID-19 pandemic has been ongoing for more than 2 years now, and new variants such as Omicron are less susceptible to the vaccines developed against earlier lineages of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
Scientific Papers
Orally efficacious lead of the AVG inhibitor series targeting a dynamic interface in the respiratory syncytial virus polymerase
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a leading cause of lower respiratory infections in infants and the immunocompromised, yet no efficient therapeutic exists. We have identified the AVG class of allosteric inhibitors of RSV RNA synthesis.
Scientific Papers
Vaccine Efficacy in Adults in a Respiratory Syncytial Virus Challenge Study
Although human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is an important cause of illness and death in older adults, no RSV vaccine has been licensed.

ESWI networks & communities

Influenza Diabetes Community

The Influenza Diabetes Community (IDC) unites scientists, healthcare professionals, patient -and other stakeholder organisations to discuss, share best practices and to network with the objective to raise awareness of the burden of influenza, Covid-19 and RSV in people living with diabetes.

Young Scientists Network

Some of the best and most innovative ideas come from young scientists, and young scientists are the future of the influenza field. For this reason, ESWI has been actively encouraging the careers of young scientists for many years.
