Given the importance of neutralising antibody responses in the prevention of viral infection, understanding the induction, maintenance and memory of these responses is critical. In this talk, Dr Underwood will present his data on neutralising antibody responses against SARS-CoV-2, which has shaped his academic career during his time in Denmark.
