Restricting the Supplies: Viral-Host Metabolic Interaction as a Novel Therapeutic Target for Infectious Diseases
July 27th | 4:00pm-5:00pm
Atkins Seminar Room (NextGen Precision Health Bldg)
Join us for “Restricting the Supplies: Viral-Host Metabolic Interaction as a Novel Therapeutic Target for Infectious Diseases” a keynote presentation by Dr. Rui Guo, School of Medicine, MizzouForward faculty candidate. Dr. Guo will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.
Dr. Rui Guo is currently an Instructor of Medicine at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He completed his BSc in Veterinary Medicine and his Msc in Microbiology at Yangzhou University in China and his PhD in Pathobiology from Kansas State University.
Dr. Guo is deeply motivated by curiosity and by a desire to alleviate human infectious diseases through biomedical research. His lab will exploit an integrated strategy combing CRIPSR genome editing, transcriptomics, metabolomics, and proteomics approaches to study viral-host metabolic and epigenetic interactions. He is amazed by how metabolism controls viral-host interactions during productive replication, such as SARS-CoV-2, or latent replication, such as Epstein-Barr virus. He envisions this as a fertile area with many opportunities for future research.
