Dr Bui obtained her PhD degree from the School of Public Health, the University of Hong Kong in 2017. She previously investigated the tissue tropism and pathogenesis of influenza B virus in human and swine respiratory systems. Her current research extends towards the study of host-virus interactions of other emerging respiratory viruses, including highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 and H7N9 viruses and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS‐CoV), with the use of human ex-vivo respiratory tract explant cultures and in-vitro primary human respiratory system cell cultures.
