The COVID-19 pandemic has many people wondering about viruses. What are they? Where do they come from? Have we been through this before? How do we fight them both physiologically and medically? This course will examine viruses and their association with humans through the ages, using examples from smallpox, polio, HIV, and others, including COVID-19.

Jan Trybula is an Associate Professor and the current Chair of Biology at SUNY Potsdam. Jan came to the North Country in 2003. His background is in Genetics. His research includes population genetics and the effect of toxins on genes. He teaches many genetic-related courses including genetics for majors and non-majors, human genetic diseases, and virology.
