The McInerney Laboratory at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden

Gerald McInerney

I attained my BSc in Microbiology at University College Dublin, Ireland in 1994 and my PhD in Molecular Virology from the Institute for Animal Health (now The Pirbright Institute) and University of Reading, UK in 2000. Since then I have been working at the Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, first as a postdoctoral researcher in Prof Peter Liljeström’s group and later as a Senior Scientist in association with Prof Gunilla Karlsson Hedestam’s group. In January 2013, I became Associate Professor of Virology. I am looking forward to expanding the group in the coming years, hoping to build on recent projects as well as venturing into new scientific areas.
