What do I do?

Innovating Protein Technologies for Therapeutic and Vaccine Design

Research Interests:

  • Platforms for vaccine development, which have been applied to SARS-CoV-2, influenza, malaria, HIV and range of veterinary diseases.
  • Protein therapeutics to target gastrointestinal tract infection and modulate the microbiome, using gastrobodies.
