How I learned to stop worrying and love a career in Infectious Disease Research
Speaker: Dr Hendrik Huthoff, Lecturer in Infectious Diseases
Summary: Dr Hendrik Huthoff is a lecturer at the King's Department of Infectious Diseases, where he researches metabolic aspects of HIV and Dengue infections. This talk will be a personal account of the unpredictable factors that influence and determine a scientific career path as well as the research itself. Having started out with an interest in structural biology and an uncanny ability to choose molecules that resist structural resolution as subjects of study, Dr Huthoff's research gradually evolved into molecular virology.
The talk will highlight key events in the undergraduate-PhD-post doc-early investigator trajectory that influenced, often by chance rather than design, the course of a career in science.
