Dr Laura Rivino graduated with a MSc at the University of Milan, Italy and in 2007 completed a PhD training in Immunology in Prof A. Lanzavecchia’s laboratory at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Bellinzona, Switzerland. During this time she developed a keen interest in understanding the human T cell response during health and disease. Dr Rivino performed post-doctoral training at the Charite’ Medical University in Berlin and the National University of Singapore (NUS) and was Head of the Flow cytometry Facility (2014-2016) and Assistant Professor at Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore (2016-2019).

Her work, supported by Singapore NMRC research grants focuses on understanding the T cell correlates of protection/immunopathology during acute viral infections, with a strong focus on dengue virus and other flaviviruses. Since July 2019, Dr Rivino continues her work on anti-viral T cell immunity at the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Bristol.
