At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the educator indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Your Introduction to Evolutionary Biology, by Ian Goodfellow at Cambridgei

  • Ian Goodfellow is Professor of Virology and Deputy Head of Department (Pathology). His research focuses on the mechanisms of RNA virus replication and pathogenesis as well as the identification of control measures for the prevention or treatment of infections. His lab established the use of reverse genetics to study the molecular basis of norovirus pathogenesis, developing the first infectious reverse genetics system for noroviruses and the study of no viruses remains their main focus. During the 2014-16 Ebola virus epidemic, Professor Goodfellow was involved in the establishment and running of one of the first diagnostic facilities in Sierra Leone before subsequently returning to establish an in-country next generation sequencing facility to enable rapid sequence analysis of Ebola viral samples. Professor Goodfellow now holds an honorary position at the University of Makeni, Sierra Leone where he has established a research facility for post-Ebola capacity building.
