I am Kun-Yi Lai from Taipei, Taiwan. I majored in Biomedical Sciences at Chang Gung University, Taiwan for my bachelor’s degree. In 2012, I further pursued a master’s degree and studied Epstein-Barr virus oncogenesis at the Graduate Institute of Microbiology, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan. After acquiring my master’s degree in 2014, I served in the Mandatory Military Service for one year. In 2016, I worked as a research assistant in the Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. In the same year, I was shortlisted by the Cells in Motion Excellence Cluster and the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Biomedicine joint graduate program (CiM-IMPRS) in Münster. I started my PhD research in October 2016 in the lab of Prof. Schelhaas. My study focuses on the regulatory functions of L2 interactions with mitotic chromatin during nuclear entry of human papilloma virus.
