Infection and Immunity

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.
