The Jarvis laboratory at Plymouth University pursues the innovative design, construction and characterization of herpesvirus vaccine vectors. We apply sophisticated recombination technologies towards basic biological questions, as well as against more immediate problems concerning humanity, such as Ebola and Rift Valley fever viruses, HIV, Flu, tuberculosis and other emerging infectious diseases and cancer. We work not in isolation, but instead regard our laboratory as only a single node of expertise in an international network of interactive scientists. Recombination technology – bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) and CRISPR – has now reached the level whereby only our imaginations and the realities of Nature can limit what we are able to achieve.
"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled" – "You can't pitch Nature."
