Byron Shue is a PhD candidate in the Viral Pathogenesis Research Laboratory, located at the Molecular Life Sciences building at the University of Adelaide. His research focuses on the complex array of host-virus interactions that occur between the flaviviruses (Zika, Dengue) and infected cells, facilitating the virus lifecycle with the overall aim of finding novel therapeutic targets against these globally significant pathogens. Utilising CRISPR/Cas-9 technology, Byron has discovered novel host proteins utilising a genome-wide approach that are hijacked by these viruses to complete their lifecycle and is currently characterising the function of these host factors to support virus infection.
