Clinical Research Fellow in Viral Immunology and Veterinary Surgeon, University of Cambridge

Sarah is a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellow studying how antibodies can protect us from different virus infections. This research is valuable for identifying correlates of protection and for developing new approaches to vaccination. Sarah is particularly interested in how some antibodies can work inside cells, and her recent work has focused on the molecular biology of rotaviruses and enveloped viruses.

Sarah is currently based at the new Cambridge Institute for Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease (CITIID) in the Department of Medicine. Prior to this, Sarah completed post-doctoral training at the MRC-Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Sarah also holds a Diploma from the American College of Veterinary Microbiology.
