MPhil Biochemistry student
Isobel is an MPhil Biochemistry student in the Salmond Lab at the University of Cambridge. Currently her research is focused on whether prophages in Citrobacter rodentium- the a mouse-specific bacterial model of pathogenic E. coli, affects its fitness and virulence.
Previously Isobel graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Exeter. Isobel undertook a research project in a CRISPR lab, looking at whether CRISPR resistance evolves in an opportunistic lung pathogen in response to bacteriophage invasion. Her results were published in a Nature paper in October 2019.
