Dr. Kolbasov’s research has focused on animal infectious disease with an emphasis on molecular diagnostics and epidemiology of high-consequence viral diseases such as African swine fever, Avian influenza, Bluetongue, Lumpy skin disease. His Federal Reseach Center of Virology and Microbiology (CVM) in Pokrov (Russia) has used comparative and functional genomic approaches together with animal disease models to define and characterize the role of specific viral and host genes in infection, based on this knowledge developing and producing diagnostic kits and vaccines.
