An exciting new career opportunity at Retroscreen Virology could be just what the doctor ordered...
In Human Viral Challenge studies, healthy volunteers are isolated in our specialist facility and are infected with a suitable respiratory virus, which is manufactured according to the highest pharmaceutical standards. They are then observed for 10 to 17 days. During this time, they may be treated with a new drug candidate, or may have already been given a new vaccine. In addition, the company often works on virus-only research programmes with the intention of simply understanding how a virus and the human body interact - such research could lead to exciting new discoveries.
Our Volunteer Screening team play a major part in this by ensuring our clinical trials are filled with medically fit and viable volunteers.
