Dr Ndongo Dia (he/him) is a virologist and head of the Reference Center for influenza and other respiratory viruses at Institut Pasteur Dakar. His team is involved in influenza surveillance in Senegal working closely with WHO collaborating centers. His research activities focus on genetic and antigenic dynamic of influenza viruses in Senegal. Investigation of flu viruses at the human/animal interfaces is another aspect of his research. The second focus is on non-influenza viruses (including coronavirus, respiratory syncytial virus, rhinovirus, parainfluenza, enterovirus, adenovirus, metapneumovirus) with the aim of describing their molecular epidemiology in Senegal. The burden of respiratory viruses (flu and non-flu), especially in pediatric groups, is also an important aspect of his team’s activities.
