Ariel Premium is happy to present and work with a collective of musicians to not only provide music relief, but to educate about the need of for face masks with a speech from Dr. Yi-Chieh EJ Perng and provide attendees with them.
EJ received his BS degree from National Taiwan University (NTU) in Zoology and MS degree in Microbiology & Immunology from NTU School of Medicine. He obtained his PhD in Molecular Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis at the Washington University in St. Louis. EJ’s doctoral research focused on the development of novel reverse genetic tools and host-viral interaction during human cytomegalovirus infection. After receiving his PhD, EJ joined Lenschow lab as a postdoctoral researcher to characterize the biological function of ISG15, a molecule that he became fascinated with when he worked on SARS papain-like protease. Currently EJ is focusing on how ISG15 re-shapes cell death to balance tissue homeostasis and the development of host-directed therapy-based novel antivirals.
