Naomi completed her PhD at the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research, Wellington, New Zealand. Presently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand, Naomi's research centres on unraveling the mechanisms employed by highly virulent strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to evade protective immunity induced by the BCG vaccine. Specifically, this work focuses on determining the role of the innate immune system in the anti-mycobacterial response and ultimately aims to improve protective outcomes for novel TB vaccines.
