Research Assistant - Parasitology & Clinical Trials
I am a Research Assistant working in the blood-stage malaria vaccine group lead by Professor Simon Draper.
Within the preclinical research carried out by the group, my work focusses on assessing the efficacy of blood-stage malaria vaccine candidates. I also work on the blood-stage malaria vaccine clinical trials, where my role is to assist with sample processing.
Prior to joining the group, I completed my undergraduate degree in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. I undertook my Masters project in Claire Edwards’ lab at the Botnar research centre, where my project was to investigate the role of microRNAs in prostate cancer metastasis.
