Hans Nauwynck is born on May 2nd, 1963 in Torhout, Belgium. He graduated as Doctor in Veterinary Medicine in 1987 at Ghent University. In 1993, he got his PhD degree, Doctor in Veterinary Sciences and became nominated as assistant professor at Ghent University. Afterwards, he promoted to associate professor in 1999 and full professor in 2004. 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. His research focuses on cellular and molecular pathogenesis of viral diseases in man and animal, with special emphasis on (i) the entry of the virus in its host with special emphasis on the primary target cell, (ii) the invasion of viruses in its host through barriers, via leukocytes and along neurons and (iii) the escape of viruses from immunity. Better insights lead to research-driven development of new generation treatments and vaccines. He is author of 400 papers, past promoter of 73 PhD students, owner of 12 patents, founder of 2 spinoffs (Imaqua and PathoSense) and frequent speaker during international veterinary and virology congresses.
