The ultimate goal of my current focus is to take advantage of the recently described in vitro co-culture model of Treponema pallidum and link its use to high throughput genomic approaches to provide unique insights into the gene expression profiles of this pathogen.

Research Interests: Genomics, transcriptomics, epidemiology, host-pathogen

Caroline Zellmer is a microbiologist and PhD student based at the Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease within the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge. Her doctoral work will focus on using genomics and applied microbiology to better understand antimicrobial resistance in Klebsiella with the aim of developing novel or repurposing available therapeutics.
