About Phillida

Phillida is a postdoctoral fellow interested in understanding how RNA viruses interface with the host RNA decay machinery. In particular, Phillida is investigating how members of Bunyaviridae and Arenaviridae family interact with host exoribonuclease, XRN1, a major RNA decay enzyme. In the future, this research could lead to novel anti-viral therapeutics.
