SESSIONS October Michael


  • NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (Primary)
  • NUS Department of Pharmacy (Joint)

Research Interests:

I have a particular interest in the mechanisms that define the pathogenic potential of flaviviruses. My laboratory frequently utilizes high-throughput sequencing and more traditional molecular genetics and microbiological techniques to elucidate these mechanisms. These tools readily translate to the mechanistic analysis of other pathogens as well. In collaboration with clinical partners both local and international, we are applying these tools to study the emergence of novel pathogens as well as known pathogens with novel clinical manifestations/associations.

Academic/Professional Qualifications:

  • BSc Biology, University of Arkansas (USA)
  • PhD Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Duke University (USA)

Teaching Activities in NUS:

  • School of Public Health Community Health Project
