PhD thesis - Characterisation of a novel pore-forming cytolysin from Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other bacterial patghogens.

Work History

I undertook my Ph.D. while working as a research assistant at St Bartholomews Hospital and then LSHTM. After completing the Ph.D. I took a post-doc position at the Bacterial Microarray Group at St. Georges Hospital (BuG@S). I was involved in design, construction, experimental design, application and data analysis on several bacterial projects.

I returned to LSHTM for my second PostDoc position that was primarily to design a microarray that could be used to monitor gene flux of virulence factors. The Active Surveillance of Pathogens (ASP) microarray has been successfully produced and has been used to identify novel virulence determinants in Shigella sonnei and Chromobacterium violaceum.
