    Mapping person-to-person variation in viral mutations that escape polyclonal serum targeting influenza hemagglutinin

    Juhye M Lee et al.
    Single viral mutations can escape polyclonal human immunity to influenza hemagglutinin, but different mutations escape the immunity of different people.
  1. Understanding the evolution of defence: an interview with Maurijn van der Zee

    Maurijn van der Zee is a tenure-track assistant professor at Leiden University in the Netherlands. His primary interest is to understand the genetic and developmental mechanisms that underlie evolutionary change in animals, but recently he has been exploring a new field: innate immunity in insects. Six months ago he became a father for the first time ‘to a beautiful daughter’. His first PhD student also graduated very recently: he says that this also felt a bit like becoming a father. Maurijn also enjoys writing popular science articles for the Dutch press and giving public lectures.
