If you picked up The Times on Saturday, you might have caught their article on the quest for the Covid-19 vaccine and the impact vaccinations could have on the spread of the virus. Our very own Dan Davis, professor of Immunology at Manchester University, featured in the article, discussing what this year’s vaccination rollout could mean for the way we look at vaccinations, and what it could mean for our understanding of the immune system.
Dan explores the power of the immune system in his book The Beautiful Cure, out now in paperback. His new book The Secret Body will be published in hardback by Bodley Head in July.
Daniel M. Davis is director of research at the University of Manchester’s Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research and a visiting professor at Imperial College, London. He has published over 100 academic papers, including papers in Nature and Science, and Scientific American, and lectures all over the world, including at the Royal Institution. He has previously won the Oxford University Press Science Writing Prize, and has given numerous interviews for national and international media, including The Times, Guardian, Metro, and National Public Radio (USA). A major feature on his research was published in The Times. Experiments filmed in his laboratory were shown in the BBC series ‘The History of Medicine’ (2008).
