Dr Chu received her Ph.D. from the School of Public Health at The University of Hong Kong in 2021. Her early research studies were focused on investigating genome wide minor variant evolution in seasonal influenza viruses using in vivo systems and next generation sequencing. Her current research is focused on defining vaccine-induced immunological escape and vaccine related enhancement of disease.
