Advanced Research Assistant
Nadia is an advanced research assistant working under the supervision of Julian Rayner. Her current work utilises phenotyping assay platforms developed in the lab to help further our understanding of erythrocyte invasion.
I joined the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Malaria Programme in 2014. I currently work on a variety of assay platforms which enable us to analyse phentoypes and help us to further our understanding of erythrocyte invasion.
Previously I have worked at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in their Infection and Immunity Division and also at The Macfarlane Burnet Institute both in Melbourne, Australia. In my previous roles my research focused on leading candidate antigens of malaria such as MSP2 and AMA-1. Specifically I was involved in measuring immune responses in clinical trials and in population studies from malaria endemic areas. I hold a BSc (HONS) in Medical Biology from Brunel University.
