Nucleic acid amplification chemistries for pathogen detection on ion-sensitive field-effect transistors
I am Reader and Principal Investigator at the University of Surrey, United Kingdom. I obtained my PhD in Virology in the University of Barcelona. I then joined the laboratory of Claude Krummenacher and Gary Cohen at the University of Pennsylvania to study herpesvirus immune evasion. In 2009 I joined the laboratory of Geoffrey Smith at Imperial College London and subsequently the University of Cambridge to study vaccinia virus modulation of innate immunity and cell death. In 2014 I established my independent research group in the University of Surrey where I am leading a team funded by the main British research councils as well as small charities to investigate virus host-interactions and immune regulation.
