Dr Josefin  Bartholdson Scott

Research Associate, Department of Medicine


I am a protein biochemist and microbiologist with expertise in host-pathogen protein interactions. My interests lie in infectious diseases, host-pathogen interactions, bacterial virulence factors, antimicrobial resistance and vaccine development.

I did my PhD at the University of Edinburgh on Burkholderia cenocepacia lipopolysaccharide modification and exopolysaccharide production. My first post doc was at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute where I studied protein-protein interactions between Plasmodium falciparum and human cells.

I am currently using high-content imaging to study antimicrobial resistance, as well as managing clinical sample processing and metagenomic sequencing projects in the Department of Medicine.
