Professor Ian Goodfellow is a Wellcome Senior Fellow, Professor of Virology and deputy head of the Department of Pathology at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on the mechanisms of RNA virus replication and pathogenesis as well as the identification of control measures for the prevention or treatment of infections. His lab established the use of reverse genetics for the study of the molecular basis of norovirus pathogenesis, developing the first infectious reverse genetics system for noroviruses. They use a combination of biochemical, molecular and proteomic approaches to define cellular pathways involved in the norovirus life cycle and small animal models to examine viral pathogenesis, while working with commercial partners on therapeutics.
