Profile

**Dr. Karniychuk is currently recruiting for a MSc Graduate Student.  Please click here for more information.**

Uladzimir Karniychuk received his DVM in 2005 from the Vitebsk State Academy of Veterinary Medicine, Belarus, and completed his Ph.D. in Veterinary Medicine at the Ghent University, Belgium, in 2012. 

During his PhD training, he worked on the pathogenesis of PRRSV infection caused by a highly pathogenic East European virus strain and PRRSV-host interactions in the endometrium and placenta.  As a postdoctoral fellow at McMaster University and University Health Network, he helped to develop the humanized mouse model for HIV-1 infection and ferret model for severe/lethal human H1N1 influenza infections.  Uladzimir Karniychuk joined VIDO-Intervac in 2016 and is currently leading a Zika virus project.
