                Biography

                  Rushika Perera is an arbovirologist with over twenty-five years of experience conducting studies on flaviviruses and alphaviruses. She has pioneered studies on the impact of host metabolism on viral infection. Using advanced mass spectrometry techniques, her research team has detailed the metabolic changes that occur in human and mosquito cells during infection with dengue viruses and have used functional studies to identify the host components involved in the process. These studies have also identified that specific host metabolic enzymes are hijacked by viral proteins to benefit the viral life cycle.
