Research Description

Dr. Hayden's past research activities have focused on the application of antiviral agents and vaccines for the prevention and treatment of respiratory viral infections, particularly influenza and rhinovirus infections. The scope of studies encompassed molecular studies of antiviral mechanisms of action and resistance, in vitro assays of viral susceptibility, animal model studies, and clinical trials involving experimentally induced and naturally occurring infections.

Dr. Hayden's  research laboratory was closed in 2006 when he began work in the Global Influenza Programme, WHO. Since 2008 he has served as the Influenza Research Coordinator to the Wellcome Trust, London and as a consultant to the NIAID-supported Southeast Asia Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Network.
