Meet the scientists:

This month:  June Almeida (1930, Glasgow, UK)

June left school at 16 without funding to go to university. Nevertheless, she became an internationally renowned virologist.

 

The delightfully simple technique, of immune electron microscopy, which she pioneered, was used not only for rubella but also for other viruses including the coronaviruses. Perhaps one of June’s most important discoveries, using immune electron microscopy, was that there are two distinct components to the hepatitis B virus.

 

Today, researchers are still using her techniques to rapidly and accurately identify viruses. Fifty-six years after she first saw a coronavirus through a microscope, Almeida’s work is more relevant than ever.
