Martin Prusinkiewicz, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow, UBC


I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Lavoie lab at BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute, part of The University of British Columbia. The lab’s primary focus is neonatal immunology, but I also have interests in neonatal developmental biology and SARS-CoV-2 related immunology.

I completed my PhD in Microbiology & Immunology at Western University in the Mymryk lab (March 2021). My thesis topic was DNA tumour virus metabolism, specifically relating to human adenovirus, human papillomavirus, and Epstein-Barr virus.
