Prof William James
Professor of Virology, and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Planning and Resources)

I am a virologist with a background in genetics and microbiology. My research interest since the mid-1980s has been largely focused on the AIDS virus, HIV-1, particularly how it replicates in macrophages and how smart nucleic acids can be developed to prevent its replication. I teach virology to medical students at Oxford University and am a Fellow of Brasenose College. I am also the University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor for Planning and Resource Allocation.
