Dr Hans Nauwynck, Professor, Gent University

Hans Nauwynck is a DVM, who did his PhD and directly became nominated as professor at Ghent University in 1993. In 2004, he took the lead of the Laboratory of Virology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Ghent University and became Diplomate at the European College of Pig Health Management. At present, he lectures several courses on viral diseases in mammals, fish and shellfish. His research focuses on cellular and molecular pathogenesis of viral diseases in man and animals, with special emphasis on (i) the entry of the virus in its host cell, (ii) the invasion of the virus in its host through barriers, via leukocytes and along neurons and (iii) the escape of the virus from immunity. Better insights lead to research-driven development of new generation treatments and vaccines. He is (co-)author of 365 peer reviewed papers, past promoter of 71 PhDs, owner of several patents and founder of two spin-offs (Imaqua & Pathosense). He is a regular invited speaker at international congresses.
