Evaluation of Mother Nature's Antivirals:
Traditional Medicine Meets Modern Science

Professor Hudson received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the University of London before emigrating to Alberta, where he obtained his Ph.D. in the field of molecular biology of bacterial viruses. He has studied viruses of bacteria, insects, fish, birds, mammals and humans. In the last decade, however, Professor Hudson's research focus has shifted from basic virus research to studies on the anti-viral activities of medicinal plants from various parts of the world. In addition, he now spends some of his time helping African scientists to develop their own facilities for evaluating their plant medicines.
