I’ve been working with Professor Barnes since 2007 and have mainly been working on the Phase 1 clinical candidate HCV vaccine studies that have been carried out in Oxford, looking at their immunogenicity in healthy volunteers and HCV patients.
I have also been involved in the NGS work of various pathogenic viruses, particularly HCV, that has been set up in collaboration with the Welcome Trust Centre for Human Genomics.
In addition to these main roles I have been looking at the immune response to HEV in HEV exposed individuals from Cornwall and Oxford in a collaboration with Dr Harry Dalton.
