Ernest Gould

Bio:Professor Ernest Gould has been a virologist for approximately 35 years, studying in Liverpool, moving to Birmingham, Belfast, London and finally, Oxford. He originally worked with orthomyxoviruses and paramyxoviruses, such as influenza and measles but for the past 25 years, his interests have focused on the arboviruses, with emphasis on the flaviviruses such as yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, tick-borne encephalitis virus. He has also worked with alphaviruses and bunyaviruses as well as with non-arboviruses such as the rabbit caliciviruses, all of which have become more prominent with the increasing interest in emerging viruses. His group recently demonstrated that African viruses such as West Nile, Usutu and Sindbis virus are being introduced into the UK via migratory birds. Ernest's areas of research cover virus epidemiology, pathogenesis, evolution, diagnosis and control. In 2002, he retired as the Director of CEH Oxford (formerly the Institute of Virology and Environmental Microbiology) and is now a Senior Research Fellow in the Institute. He has been a member of several advisory committees including, ACDP, ACZOO, and is currently a member of the University of Oxford Safety Committee and the equivalent committees in CEH. Ernest also advises on the containment level 4 laboratory in Lyon, France. He has published approximately 150 peer reviewed papers and written many reviews and book chapters.
