David L Robertson

MRC Investigator, Head of CVR Bioinformatics

MRC University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research


Since moving to the University of Glasgow in 2017 I’ve taken over from Andrew Davison as head of CVR Bioinformatics. We are a group of bioinformaticians, computational biologists and computer scientists focussed on virus research. We're comprised of a core team who work with the CVR researchers and have their own independent research interests, computer-based postdocs who are dedicated to specific research projects, independently funded research fellows, and PhD students who work with our team and supervisors in the CVR and other parts of the university. My own research interests include viral evolution and diversity, systems virology, virus-host specificity, change in the virome and the trade-offs between molecular evolution and disease susceptibility. See my University of Glasgow page for further details.
