Dr Lauren Sullivan
Lauren Sullivan is a Daphne Jackson Fellow at The Francis Crick Institute.
Prior to her nearly three year career break, Lauren completed a successful PhD and postdoctoral position where she developed a field-compatible diagnostic test for Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) (Sullivan et al, 2013 and 2014).
Lauren is now returning to malaria research with her Fellowship, which is also sponsored by The Francis Crick Institute.
Lauren’s research project is titled: Investigation into somatic hypermutation and isotype switching of antibodies specific for Merozoite Surface Protein-1 (MSP-1) of Plasmodium chabaudi in different populations of memory B Cells during a malaria infection in mice and is due to be completed in 2019.
