Dr Yen, Hui-Ling 嚴慧玲
Dr. Hui-Ling Yen received her Ph.D. in Epidemiological Science in 2005 from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor followed by her postdoctoral training at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, TN. Her research interests focus on understanding the mechanism facilitating the transmission of influenza A virus among and between different reservoirs, exploring the potential virus-host interactions that affect viral pathogenicity and the host clinical outcome, and examining the molecular determinants that confer antiviral resistance.
The ongoing research projects aim to study the modes of influenza transmission in animal models and at the animal-human interface. We continue to study the functionality of viral proteins associated with transmissibility and pathogenicity. Those studies are in collaboration with researchers from the University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong), Guangdong Provincial CDC (China), Genomic Research Centre, Academia Sinica (Taiwan), and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (USA).
Dr. Yen is a Full Member of the American Society of Virology. She serves as an Editorial Board Member at Antiviral Research and an Academic Editor at PLoS ONE.
