Sandra Belij-Rammerstorfer

Postdoctoral Scientist

I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Belgrade, where I was working on different scientific projects in the field of Immunotoxicology, in particular effects of pesticides on the immune system. I completed my PhD at the Medical University of Vienna where I worked in the area of Vaccine Development on a project with a strong emphasis on generating a mucosal vaccine candidate and appropriate adjuvants for prevention of the neglected ocular surface disease trachoma, caused by Chlamydia trachomatis.

At the Jenner Institute I am currently working with Prof. Teresa Lambe in the Emerging Pathogens Vaccine Programme with particulate interest in immune response towards Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever Virus (CCHFV) and other Nairoviruses to aid effective vaccine design. Since the beginning of SARS-CoV-2 pandemic I have been involved in preclinical and clinical studies related to development of the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine.
