Dr Shee-Mei Lok is an Associate Professor in the Emerging Infectious program in Duke-NUS. She was a National Research Foundation (NRF) fellow (2009-2014) and is now a NRF Investigator. She is a structural virologist specializing in x-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy. Her research interest focus on the structural changes of flavivirus during its infection cycle and the effect of anti-viral therapeutics on virus particle. Her laboratory made significant discoveries in the Zika virus structure, structural changes of dengue virus at 37oC, the understanding of how potent human antibodies neutralise dengue/Zika virus and the structural changes of dengue virus during maturation.
