How to Vanquish a Virus


Paul Ian Cross


How to Vanquish a Virus is a funny, fascinating blend of facts, quotes and science stories from the world of health research and science history.

In the wake of Covid-19, children and parents are keen to understand – and be reassured about – viruses and other health issues. With over twenty years' experience of scientific research, Dr Paul Ian Cross sets out to answer all the questions we didn't know we needed answering until now. What does a virus look like? How does a virus get passed from person to person? How have viruses changed the world? And who are the men and women who have beaten them? With children leading the revolution, now is the time to understand the importance of making medicines ... and how to vanquish a virus. Any fans of Horrible Histories or Operation Ouch will love this book.

 

Paul Ian Cross, PhD is a scientist, researcher, writer and video creator from London, UK. Paul works in clinical research (developing new medicines) and he’s also a science communicator (presenting science to non-scientists). Paul has a passion for introducing children to STEM subjects, particularly reluctant readers. By introducing science creatively, he aims to spark their interest, allowing them to gain confidence with their reading. As a previous reluctant reader himself, he understands how hard it can be. But it’s all about making reading fun and interesting!
