"Since gaining my PhD at Wuhan University in China, my major research interest has been in understanding how viruses fuse with the target membrane, and the underlying molecular mechanisms using single molecule imaging technique. I like playing badminton during my free time."

"My name is Meisui Liu, and I am an undergraduate student working in the Ivanovic Lab. My research project aims to investigate the mechanism of resistance emergence against cell-entry inhibitors for influenza virus. In my free time, I enjoy baking desserts, reading, and spending time with my cat. I also have a slight obsession with chocolate."

"The cellular trafficking machinery has always fascinated me, whether for employing it to engineer cells with intracellular antibodies (intrabodies), for delivering proteins into cells, or as a vehicle in the viral entry process. By a combination of biochemical, biophysical and cell biological approaches, I aim to investigate the underlying functional changes in cell entry that help viruses to spread. In winter I enjoy occasional ice skating."
