Alan Cyril Jacques Wacquiez, PhD
Postdoctoral Associate
Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine
Biochemistry & Cell Biology

Dr. Wacquiez is currently a Postdoctoral Associate in the Saeed Lab located at the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) of Boston University. Born in the city of Nantes in France, he obtained a Ph.D. degree from the University of Tours, France, in 2020. His research during this time investigated the molecular interactions between the influenza virus non-structural protein 1 (NS1) and double-stranded RNA molecules.

After his Ph.D., Dr. Wacquiez joined the “Respiratory Infection and Immunity” research team in the laboratory of Dr. Mustapha Si-Tahar at the Research Center for Respiratory Diseases (CEPR) in Tours, France, for a short postdoctoral stint. There, he studied the role of succinylation, a post-translational protein modification, in influenza virus infection and its involvement in anti-viral immunity. In the August of 2022, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Mohsan Saeed, where he is currently exploring the role of viral and host protease in shaping virus-host interactions.
