Congratulations Dr. Laura Makin

Congratulations to IITM student, Laura Makin, who recently passed her DPhil viva!


Laura joined the IITM programme in 2013 and undertook rotation projects with Omer Dushek and Anton van der Merwe at the Dunn School and Jeanne Salje and Nick Day at MORU, Bangkok, Thailand before settling in Eva Gluenz‘s lab at the Dunn School for her main project.

Laura’s project looked at host-parasite interactions in Leishmania which causes the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis. In particular, Laura focussed on the subcellular origin of extracellular vesicles in Leishmania and their effects on host macrophages.

Congratulations again to Laura and good luck for your future career.
