Biography Dr Terry Jackson worked for more than 23 years at The Pirbright Institute (a world-leading centre for research of farm animal and zoonotic viral diseases) as a research scientist and a Group Leader. His primary research area was the molecular mechanisms of picornavirus replication (cell-entry and intracellular replication) but he also worked on cell-entry of bluetongue virus. During his time at Pirbright, Dr Jackson gained an in-depth knowledge and expertise in virus cell-entry and intracellular replication, antibody-antigen interactions and molecular biology methods. He has published over 50 papers in international, peer-reviewed journals and has extensive experience of preparing successful competitive grant applications for several UK grant-funding bodies. He was a Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey and the University of East Anglia and served as an Editor for the Journal of General Virology and as core member of BBSRC (Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council) Research Committee D.
