Dr Anita Skinner
BSc PhD DipHE FHEA
After completing my degree in Biochemistry at Imperial College, I came to the School in 1991 to begin working towards my PhD with Prof. Jennie Blackwell. After one year the group moved to Cambridge, where I finished my PhD working on molecular aspects of Leishmania mexicana.
From Cambridge I moved to the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) in Mill Hill to work on Influenza as a Post Doctoral researcher. After that I worked on mycobacterium tuberculosis jointly at St Georges Hospital and The Eastman Dental Institute, more specifically on how the mycobacteria can effect bone biology.
I am currently the Deputy Programme Director for the Msc in Infectious Diseases (by Distance Learning)
Deputy Programme Director for DL MSc in Infectious Diseases. Co-Module Organiser of module Biology of Infectious Diseases
A common theme for my research is macrophage infection.
