Welcome at the official website of the CoV Project

The project Virus biology, host ecology, and human behaviour as determinants for coronaviral zoonoses was launched officially on 1 July 2010 under the 2nd DFG Call for German-African Cooperation Projects in Infectology. This site provides an overview of the aims of the research project, the consortium of institutions involved including the investigators and staff. It informs about current activities, graduate training courses for African students. A pilot phase clip providing insights into some fieldwork can be accessed  here. Furthermore, publications and vacancies can be accessed.

Have a look around and approach us with any questions.
