Yi Ren, Biochemistry

Congratulations to CSB Researcher Yi Ren, Biochemistry, on being recognized as a School of Medicine Basic Sciences Dean’s Faculty Fellow. She and Gregor Neuert, MPB, follow in the footsteps of inaugural fellows Marija Zanic, CDB, and Manuel Ascano, Biochemistry.

The Ren Lab’s most recent work revealed that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, exploits the mRNA export machinery via multiple mechanisms, including one in which it hijacks the same host factors as VSV and causes a suppression of immune signaling.

Congratulations Yi!
