Post doctoral Research Associate Clinical Infection, Microbiology and Immunology


    Personal Statement

    I am a postdoc within the Brain Infection Group, Institute of Infection and Global Health. I am particularly interested in the molecular mechanisms by which bacteria and viruses can cause disease within the body and the host response. The ultimate aim of my research is to be able to translate my findings from looking at the human host response to infectious diseases in a way that will improve current diagnostics strategies and hopefully develop new point of care diagnostics that will be suited to low income settings in order to improve patient lives. My training is in microbiology and infection sciences.
