Mai-Chi Trieu


Researcher, Influenza Centre



Dr. Mai-Chi Trieu completed her PhD in 2018 with Professor Rebecca Jane Cox at the Influenza Centre, K2, UiB, where she studied the long-term immune response after pandemic and seasonal influenza vaccination in healthcare workers. She received a postdoctoral fellowship from UiB to continue her research work, which focuses on immune response after vaccination or infection with influenza in different age groups. Since 2020, Dr. Mai-Chi Trieu has been studying aspect of immunity to SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination. In 2022, she received a travel grant from UiB to spend a one-year sabbatical research visit to the Kent lab, University of Melbourne, Australia to deepen her knowledge on T- and B-cell responses after COVID-19 vaccination and infection in adults and the elderly using new methods to study the cross-reactivity of memory B cells and the rapid detection of antigen-specific T cells by activation-induced markers. She is interested in studying memory immune response after a life-long of exposure to influenza or after initial exposure to SARS-CoV-2 and its influence on the immune response to subsequent infection or vaccination, which greatly contribute to protetion against these viruses.
