Hello everyone! I have successfully joined Cloud Scientist program！
I‘m Zhengli Shi, a Principal Investigator of CAS Key Laboratory of Special Pathogens, Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I have been working on discovery and characterization of novel viruses from bats and other wildlife. I carried out systemic studies on epidemiology, genetic evolution, interspecies infection mechanism and pathogenesis of bat viruses. The accomplishments of my team include 1) identify the pathogen of COVID-19 and its probable bat origin; 2) identify the pathogen causing swine acute diarrhoea syndrome and its bat origin; 3) identify a gene pool of SARS-related coronaviruses; 4) discover a large number of novel bat viruses, including filoviruses, adenoviruses, reoviruses, circovirus, etc.
