David Bhella, Ph.D., a structural virologist at the MRC Centre for Virus Research in Glasgow, accepts the Peter Wildy Prize for Microbiology Education, awarded annually by the Society for General Microbiology for an outstanding contribution to microbiology education.
In his laboratory David produces beautiful three-dimensional structures of viruses. In this video you will see how he uses this visual material to educate the public about viruses. David has also developed engaging course material for activities at the Glasgow Science Centre.
I was honored to receive the Wildy Prize in 2012 for my use of social media to teach microbiology.
