Director Laboratory of Virology


Prof. Dr. Hans Nauwynck is the director of the laboratory of Virology. With over 10 years of experience in the field of viral shrimp infections, he uses his expertise on pathogenesis and control of viral diseases to identify and document the way White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) infects and kills its host. Recently, his research group demonstrated that WSSV has difficulties to infect shrimp by oral route and by immersion. They were also successful in developing shrimp cell cultures and in unraveling the WSSV replication cycle.
