Welcome to Wong's Virology!

This site contains notes on various aspects of virology. It is designed as a study aid for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Besides general information on virology and individual viruses, this site also contains suggested answers to some likely examination questions in virology as well as some ready-to-use slide sets. My name is Derek Wong and I am a medical virologist working in Hong Kong. I worked in the laboratory that detected the first ever human avian influenza infection in May 1997 and was involved during the avian influenza crisis later that year, and the SARS crisis in 2003. Previously I have worked in the U.K. I have an M.Sc degree in virology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as well as fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists FRCPath(UK). I am extensively involved in teaching virology to medical students and laboratory technologists. I would like to dedicate this site to my mother Elaine Li Yee Ling.
