Biography

Dr Kenrie Hui received her Ph.D. from the Department of Microbiology in The University of Hong Kong, and her postdoctoral training at Centre of Influenza Research, School of Public Health, The University of Hong Kong. Since her Ph.D. study, she mainly works on the innate immunity during influenza A (H5N1) infection, signaling pathways of cytokine induction including the role of innate sensing receptors in cytokine induction and amplification of cytokine production.

Her research interests focus on understanding the pathogenesis of highly pathogenic influenza A viruses, exploring cellular targets as novel therapeutic options for severe influenza disease, and examining the tropism and immune responses of emerging respiratory viruses (influenza viruses, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2) in ex vivo cultures and primary cell models derived from human respiratory tract.

Dr Hui was awarded Croucher Foundation Research Studentships and Butterfield-Croucher Studentship during her Ph.D. study. She received the Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds Travel Grant and Promising Investigator Scholarship in the Options for the Control of Influenza VII in 2010. She was awarded Keystone Symposia Scholarship in the Keystone Symposia in 2011.
