Bert Devriendt International Veterinary Immunology Symposium 2016

Bert Devriendt

Dr. Bert Devriendt is a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratory of Immunology, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Ghent University. In 2010 he obtained his PhD on the interaction between virulence factors of enterotoxigenic E. coli with intestinal epithelial cells and dendritic cells in a piglet model. During his postdoc he focuses on host-pathogen interactions and how the gained insights might be used to accelerate the development of oral vaccines to prevent enteric diseases. Dr. Bert Devriendt also investigates how alphaherpesviruses, such as pseudorabies virus, subvert immune cell functions in pigs.
