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.
