Postdoctoral Fellow

Oxford Clinical Research Unit, Indonesia







Network Associate


Research Keywords: 

TB, diagnostic, vaccine, neglected tropical diseases



I had immense interest in infectious disease studies especially Tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases. I initiate my scientific career as a research assistant in Protein Engineering Research Group of Indonesia Institute of Science. I pursued my PhD in Biomaterial and Biomolecule Control System Group of National Institute for Material Science, Tsukuba Japan and graduated from Hokkaido University Japan. I proceed my research career as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Tsukuba Primate Research Center, National Institute for Biomedical Innovation and Health Nutrition, Tsukuba Japan. Finally, I came back to Indonesia and joined Eijkman Oxford Clinical Research as a postdoctoral fellow and performed studies mostly on molecular diagnostic of Tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases like Leptospirosis. I am very widely open to any research collaboration.
