Seamus Morrone

Research Scientist

Seamus received his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Washington and his PhD from The Johns Hopkins University, where he worked under Professor Jungsan Sohn. His graduate work focused on a class of innate immune receptors and their propensity to form filaments when activated, which suggests a way to understand certain autoimmune diseases. He then worked with Professor Sheemei Lok at Duke-NUS in Singapore, where he performed structural studies on dengue and Zika viruses and their interactions with antibodies. He joined the Moritz group in the summer of 2019.
