We build the publications from HKU and external sources automatically. If you do not see your publications here, please note:
  • We receive data from HKU's Research Output System (ROS), after you or your people enter data there. If you have entered, or are going to enter data into ROS, we do not want to enter them manually into the Hub, as it will create duplicates. When entering data into ROS, please remember to include the DOI or ISBN. It will help us match on outside sources, and dedup.
  • If you are NOT going to enter publication data into ROS, or if you have publications from before your time at HKU, please put them into an EndNote file and send to us, hub@lib.hku.hk. It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hk". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one, http://lib.hku.hk/general/help.html
  • You may log into your ResearcherPage with your HKU Portal, and use the "Manage Publications" entry on the green left side menu, to unlink publications from your ResearcherPage, or, select a few to appear in a new box, "Selected Publications".
  • Confused? Please write to hub@lib.hku.hk.

     Biography

    Dr. Renee WY Chan obtained her PhD degree in the Department of Microbiology and Department of Pathology, The University of Hong Kong in 2008 and had her post-doctoral fellow training in the Department of Pathology and Centre of Influenza Research. She was awarded with the Wong Ching Yee Medical Postgraduate Scholarship in 2007 and the Research Output Prize of the LKS Faculty of Medicine in 2008 during her PhD study. Since she has started her career in influenza virus research, she has 34 publications in international peer-review journals. She has been involved in the discovery of an alternative influenza receptor of avian influenza virus in the human upper respiratory tract (Nature Medicine, 2007) and thereby written a review article on influenza virus receptors (Trends in Microbiology, 2008). With her contribution to the better understanding of influenza virus tropism in human, the Hong Kong Institution of Science recently awarded her with the Young Scientist Award 2011. 

    Her main research interest is on risk assessing the emerging swine and avian influenza virus by studying their tissue tropism and pathogenesis in human and swine respiratory organ ex vivo culture models and well-differentiated primary respiratory cell culture models. As a long term collaboration with St Jude Children’s Research Hospital and The Pulmonary Centre of the Boston University School of Medicine, Dr. Chan worked as Visiting Scientist in Professor Robert Webster’s Laboratory and in Professor Jay Mizgerd’s Laboratory in the fall of 2011, respectively.

    Her current research project is on lung local immunity towards specific strains of influenza virus, isolation of Individual cellular components, including lung stem cell, from the adult human distal lung and the pathogenesis of post influenza secondary bacteria infection. 

    Dr Chan has obtained a total of 5 competitive grants ( 1 GRF and 4 RFCID) with a total funding amount of over HK$5 million. Dr Chan is also an Academic Editor of the journal PLoS ONE.
