Experience

Here at Westmead Hospital, John Haniotis is involved in the New South Wales Arbovirus Surveillance and Mosquito Monitoring program. His is chiefly responsible for the virological aspects of the project, including the isolation of arboviruses from mosquitoes (particularly flaviviruses and alphaviruses), their identification using a fixed-cell ELISA, and maintenance of a variety of cell culture lines, including C6/36, BHK, PSEK and Vero cells. John is involved in the refinement of a quality control system to monitor various aspects of ELISA and is jointly responsible for the production of the annual Arbovirus Surveillance and Vector Monitoring report for the New South Wales Health Department.

Prior to joining Westmead Hospital, John was employed at the Virology Department at Prince Henry Hospital and undertook diagnostic virology.
