Our amazing immune system protects us from pesky pathogens. Join the Altenburg/Boyle Lab to learn all about viruses and how our immune system fights them!

Play germ hide & seek to discover how our immune system helps seek out pathogens that are hiding inside cells. Spin the virus roulette wheel to find out which components are essential for a virus to thrive. In the Infection Game, you can use the power of the immune system to stop a fast-replicating virus from spreading!
