Dr Anita Skinner
BSc PhD DipHE FHEA
Deputy Programme Director Infectious Diseases MSc
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)
I have recently become a Fellow of the University of London Center for Distance Education (CDE)
Deputy Programme Director for DL MSc in Infectious Diseases.
Co-Module Organiser of module Biology of Infectious Diseases
Fellow of Center for Distance Education (UoL)
A common theme for my lab research was macrophage infection.
I am now interested in pedagogical research and evaluating inovations within the Infectious Diseases Porgramme and beyond. As part of this I am involved with LEARN within the LSHTM CELT umbrella.
