Please join us for the latest instalment of the Wright-Fleming Institute Infection and Immunity Seminar Series.
Dr David Bauer (Francis Crick Institute) will deliver a talk on ‘The Role of RNA Structure in Replication of Influenza and Coronaviruses’.
The seminar will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. All are welcome to attend.
About the speaker
David is a new group leader at the Francis Crick Institute, where he heads the RNA Virus Replication Laboratory. His work focuses on how virus RNA structure affects replication, transcription, and immune activation. Originally from New York, David carried out his doctoral work at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics and received an NSF postdoctoral fellowship to study RNA polymerases and transcription using single-molecule methods with Achilles Kapanidis at Oxford. David then joined Ervin Fodor’s group at the Dunn School of Pathology in Oxford to study influenza virus transcription, combining his interests in genomics and RNA.
