The European Society for translational Antiviral Research (ESAR)

The European Society for translational Antiviral Research (ESAR) is a not-for-profit organization who aims to bring together scientists and clinicians throughout Europe to expand knowledge on resistant viruses and to investigate the molecular epidemiology of drug-resistant viruses in Europe from Public Health and scientific perspectives.

ESAR will act as a collaborative network for scientific studies, quality control, guidelines and training activities. The ESAR Society is intended to give individual members in European countries and Israel a chance to contribute to its management, but membership is also open to individuals from other countries. At least once a year ESAR organizes a Board and Council members meeting. Furthermore for all the ESAR members we organize a meeting once a year as well.

During this meetings recent developments and new strategies will be discussed. Please visit our website for more information:


BALTINFECT – Unlocking the infectious diseases research potential at Riga Stradins University.

Baltinfect stands for Collaborative Research Project on unlocking the research potential in the area of infectious, immunological and rare diseases at Riga Stradins University by establishing two new laboratories: a digital immunological visualisation laboratory and an infectious diseases modelling laboratory, and by up-scaling research personnel capacity by employing experienced incoming researchers. This will help facilitate integration into the ERA, accompanied by dedicated dissemination activities and two scientific workshops and one scientific conference. Through a 3.5-year collaborative research programme, the Strategic intellectual property development plan will allow the optimal management of intellectual assets at the University. Baltinfect is funded by a grant from the European Commission, Seventh Framework Programme: BALTINEFCT is the partner of the Baltic Network against life-threatening viral infections since 2015.



Every time we travel by plane, we are under direct hit of cosmic radiation. Pilots usually receive the bigger radiation doses than even nuclear industry workers – this is why they live about 49 years on average. Exposition to radiation may on the long term affect your health, also your resistance to infections. helps you to calculate the radiation received on a plane according to the flights you’ve made and make a prognose of your future dose of radiation depending on your travelling schedule. Together, we can offer you an advice from professional radiologists on the means to lower the effect of being exposed to radiation. Partner of the Baltic Network against life-threatening viral infections since 2015.
