Dr Rui Pedro Galão - Postdoctoral Fellow (Oct 2009 - present).

Rui Galao

Rui received his PhD from Juana Dietz’s lab in Barcelona. He has been heavily involved in many aspects of our group’s interests and currently leads our investigations into tetherin’s signaling activity as well as innate restriction of Ebola Virus.

Dr Suzanne Pickering – Postdoctoral Fellow (Sept 2009-present).

Suzanne Pickering

Suzy has extensive experience of studying the immunobiology of HIV-1 from her PhD with Prof Robin Weiss. Here she has studied the functional variation on Vpu in HIV+ individuals and is currently characterizing the mechanism of its inhibition of NFκB.tients with different disease progressions. She also studies tetherin antagonism by primary HIV-2 isolate envelope glycoproteins from the Caio cohort in Guinea-Bissau.

 Dr Toshana Foster – Postdoctoral Fellow (January 2012 - present)

Toshana FosterToshana worked on the structural biochemistry of hepatitis C virus for her PhD with Mark Harris and Stephen Griffin in Leeds. She currently leads our studies into the role of IFITM proteins in HIV pathogenesis, as well as contributing to our understanding of the molecular/cell biology of Vpu.

 Dr Pedro Baptista de Matos, Postdoctoral Fellow (June 2013 – present)

 

pedro

Pedro studied the biophysics of viral entry during his graduate studies with Nuno Santos at the University of Lisbon. He now works on the cell biology of DNA sensing of retroviral reverse transcription, and the role of Vpr.

Julia Weinelt – PhD Student (January 2012 - present).

 

Weinelt

Julia’s PhD is funded by the ERC. She has studied the relevance of tetherin isoforms in HIV biology as well as the cell biology of their counteraction by Vpu. Her current studies investigate the restriction of retroviral infectivity that is regulated by the HIV-1 Nef protein...

Jonathan Sumner – PhD Student (October 2013 - present).

jonny

Jonathan is a KBI/GSTT Charity student. His projects examine the role Vpu plays in manipulating CD4+ T cells activation and differentiation. Particularly he studies the role of a novel Vpu target in T cell activation and the role it and NFκB may play in HIV-1 latency.

Harry Wilson – PhD Student (January 2015 - present).

Harry SNHarry’s graduate studies focus on Ebola Virus. Particularly he uses a safe virus-like particle system to identify and characterize innate antiviral restriction factors of filoviral replication.

Franka Debeljak - PhD Student (October 2015 -present)

Franka DebeljakFranka is a KBI/GSTT Charity student. Her graduate project is to study the cell biology of Ebola Virus entry and in particular the role of the actin cytoskeleton.
