Melioidosis, Cellular Immunity, Immunometabolism, Diabetes



I am a postdoc in Prof. Susanna Dunachie's Tropical Immunology research group. I am currently working on defining immune correlates of survival and protection from melioidosis specifically focusing on the cell mediated immune response in humans. I have a keen interest in immunometabolism and how metabolic changes in immune cells from diabetes contribute to their susceptibility to infection and vaccine efficacy.
