Congratulations to Horace Lee!

The whole HKU-Pasteur Research Pole's team wish to congratulate Dr Horace Lee for having defended his thesis after he started to work with us as a PhD student in May 2014.

Supervised by Roberto Bruzzone, Horace worked on the major effectors of the host innate immunity in response to Influenza virus infection, the interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs). Focusing on one of these genes, Horace showed its essential role in the phagocytic function of macrophages.

Congratulations drinks after the defence of Horace's thesis, "The role of ISG15 in macrophages during influnza virus infection"
