Jane Flint is a Professor of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. Dr. Flint's research focuses on investigation of the molecular mechanisms by which gene products of adenoviruses modulate host cell pathways and anti-viral defenses to allow efficient reproduction in normal human cells. Vincent Racaniello is Higgins Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Racaniello has been studying viruses for over 35 years, including poliovirus, rhinovirus, enteroviruses, and hepatitis C virus. Dr. Racaniello blogs about viruses at virology.ws and is host of the popular science program This Week in Virology.
"Principles of Virology is an extremely valuable and highly informative textbook that describes virology at the interface of modern cell biology. Instead of teaching virus groups individually, the authors elegantly compile the molecular and cell biological aspects that orchestrate virus replication in general and how infections with these pathogens cause cell damage and diseases. As a teacher of Master students in Biosciences and in human medicine, I highly recommend this textbook." Ralf Bartenschlager, Department Head and Professor, Molecular Virology, University of Heidelberg
