Congratulations to Nelson Lau who was one of six recipients of the 2022 Wing Tat Lee awards, funded to establish cooperative research programs between BUSM and Chinese universities (with a preference for Hong Kong).

Dr. Lau’s lab will collaborate with Dr. Feifei Yin, associate professor of biology at the Hainan Medical University to characterize virus small RNAs in mosquitoes and ticks from Southern China. This collaboration will build a new BUSM Tick Small RNA Genomics resource to complement the Mosquito Small RNA Genomics resource that the Lau lab has built in collaboration with NEIDL investigators.
