Yang Lab

Dominique J. Burri, Ph.D.



     Originally from beautiful Switzerland, I received my PhD from the University of Lausanne in 2012. There, I worked in Professor Stefan Kunz's lab to understand the relationship between Arenavirus surface glycoproteins and SKI-1/S1P, a cellular enzyme involved in their processing and activation. I joined Professor Priscilla Yang's lab in March 2013. As a SNSF fellow, I am pursuing my interest in virology by developing innovative molecular tools to better probe and describe key steps of Flavivirus and Alphavirus life cycles.
