Since 2009, Gerry has been the organiser and main lecturer in the Virology Section of the Infection and Immunity course in the KI Biomedicine Undergraduate Program. The section provides a comprehensive introduction to Virology as well as lectures on Viral Entry, Viral Genome Replication and Virus Assembly. A series of 3 lectures looks closely at the interactions between viruses and cells (Viral Subversion of Cellular Functions I: The Type I Interferon System, II: Translational Control and III: Cell Cycle and Apoptosis). A final series of lectures focusses on individual virus families containing important human pathogens. The course concludes with a 3 day laboratory demonstration.
