Anna obtained her BSc in Medical Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and was awarded a PhD in Biomedicine from the University of Bonn, Germany, in Professor Percy Knolle’s lab, where she studied antigen cross-presentation and tolerance induction in the liver. She then moved to the lab of Professor Mala Maini at UCL, UK, working on the regulation of T cell exhaustion in chronic viral hepatitis B patients. In 2017 she was appointed as lecturer in the Department of Infectious Diseases at King's.
Her research focuses on the metabolic regulation of human T cell responses in the context of chronic antigen stimulation, such as found in viral infections and cancer.
