ANDREAS PUSCHNIK, PH.D.

Biohub Fellow, Infectious Disease Initiative

Puschnik recieved his Ph.D. from Stanford University. He carried out his thesis research in Jan Carette’s lab at Stanford, where he devised haploid and CRISPR genetic screens to identify host factors that are critical for viral infection. He applied these techniques to dengue, Zika, and hepatitis C viruses, which revealed novel antiviral targets. As a CZ Biohub Fellow, Puschnik plans to continue using CRISPR and other powerful genetic screens to study both persistent and emerging viruses as well as cellular pathways important for their virulence.
