Haiyin Liu

I am passionate about studying the many roles of ubiquitination in cell biology and immunity. After obtaining a BSc in Biotechnology at the University of Applied Sciences Hamburg (Germany) and a MSc in Molecular Biology at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Netherlands), I briefly worked on cellular internalisation sensors, before joining the lab of Dr. Justine Mintern at the University of Melbourne to pursue a PhD in Biochemistry. My work has contributed to twelve publications, including first author papers in Angewandte Chemie and the Journal of Experimental Medicine. I was awarded the Sawyer Medal by the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Melbourne in 2016. I am now a research fellow in the Department of Biochemistry in the lab of Dr. Justine Mintern, studying the mechanism and functions of membrane receptor ubiquitination and its impact on immunity. We are using methods including animal models, flow cytometry, CRISPR knockout and knock-ins, genome wide library screens, and biochemical/cellular assays.
