CES Academic Programme

It is a great pleasure to announce and host Dr. Christiane Wobus as our external CES speaker on Friday 8th May and to invite you to attend the research seminar.  In just 14 years since completing her PhD Christiane has made several ground breaking discoveries that affect not only virology but all aspects of science that involve mouse husbandry.  Together with Stephanie Karst and Skip Virgin she discovered murine norovirus  (Science 2003, 299:1575-8).  Christiane was the first to devise a cell culture system for the murine norovirus ( or any norovirus) and recently co - authored the first description of a cell culture system for human norovirus in B cells (Science 2014, 346: 755-9).

She is an excellent speaker and her research has had a profound impact.
