Research Interests

Virology is one of the most exciting fields in biology. From the COVID-19 pandemic to viral-based gene and cell therapies, in the Tse Lab, we seek to understand viral pathogenesis and transmission at the molecular level to develop new guidelines, vaccines, and antivirals for public health measures. We also focus on the engineering pathogenic viruses into harmless nanoparticles for medical use in gene therapy and vaccine development.

Inspired by the elegance of evolution, we use multiple innovative technologies (saturation-mutagenesis, directed-evolution, molecular engineering, CRISPR genome-wide screening, and multiple-omics sequencing) to recapitulate, direct, and accelerate the natural viral evolution process in a controlled laboratory environment.

We are currently developing new platforms to bridge experimental biology with artificial intelligence (Bridge2AI) to propel the next phase of scientific exploration.

Future of science: YOU, YOU and YOU!

We believe diversity and equity is the core of society, we welcome all levels, genders, and ethnicities of students, scientists, engineers, and innovators to join our journey! Please do not hesitate to contact us!
