Anna Schurich

Lecturer, King's College London

I started my career as an immunologist by studying Medical Microbiology and Immunology at Newcastle University, UK, followed by a PhD at the University of Bonn, Germany and a postdoctoral position at University College London, UK. I am now a lecturer at King’s College London.

Through these years I have developed an interest in the immune response against viruses. My research focuses on understanding why the immune response to some viruses is inefficient allowing these pathogens to establish a persistent infection.

My interest in the importance of childhood vaccination really started with the arrival of my daughter, when I realised that it was not always easy to get reliable information on immunisations. When the BSI launched its vaccination ambassador programme I was therefore keen to get involved. I hope together we can make a difference to parents who have got questions about the workings of the immune system and vaccinating their children.
