Professor Horby's research focusses on epidemic diseases such as Ebola and bird flu, and crosses the disciplines of basic science, medical science and public health.
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has rapidly become the deadliest since the discovery of the virus. Was the British Government’s response appropriate? What are the risks to us? And what do we really know about this deadly disease?
Professor Adrian Hill and Professor Peter Horby reveal the history and biology of Ebola and discuss how close we are to ending the crisis, in a panel discussion on Ebola at the Cheltenham Science Festival 2-7 June 2015.
Led by Professor Horby, the International Severe Acute Respiratory and Emerging Infection Consortium (ISARIC) provides a collaborative platform through which global, patient‐oriented clinical studies can be developed, executed and shared.
