The Centre of Human Virology organised a “Meet the Virologist” at the Thinktank. The event included fun science activities such as “Make your own super virus”, “Match the virus to its target organ” and “ the virus replication game”.

Through the activities children and adults got a feel for what viruses actually are and how/why different viruses attack different part of our body. In return the Centre of Human Virology team heard about personal experiences with virus infections and creative stories about imaginative “super viruses”.
