Yohei Yamauchi, MD, PhD

University of Zurich


Dr. Yohei Yamauchi is highly interested in basic research on the topic of influenza virus entry and virus-host interactions. His medical background and clinical training merges well with his interests. His scientific approach is to identify host factors (via RNAi and drug screening) that are very important for virus entry and infection, and to identify the phenotypes and dissect the mechanism of action. He is currently a group leader in the IMLS at University of Zurich, Switzerland.
