Ilona Baraniak PhD & Post Doctoral Associate 2013-2018
Ilona joined as a lowly PhD student and subsequently stayed on as a Post Doc.
After PNAS, 2x JID paper and EbioMedicine papers Ilona decided the bench life was not for her and, instead, has moved to Munich to begin life as a Biosciences Consultant and a doting wife!
Henry Barrow Student & Research Technician 2016-2018
Ariane Cruz Gomes Post Doctoral Associate 2018-2020
Ariane leaves us after a productive time investigating the mechanism of protection of HCMV vaccine.
She is the co-founder of a start-up company, baseimmune, that looks to use bioinformatic approaches to identify novel strategies for vaccine development.
Henry leaves us after joining us an undergraduate summer student, project student and then researcher technician.
Henry is another one from the lab who is on the Cambridge Wellcome Trust PhD programme and is now a fully paid up member of Dr. Stephen Graham's lab at Cambridge.
Nick Peters Post Doctoral Associate 2015-2017
Nick joined us as when he was an F2 academic for 3 years. Nick trained in Geoff Smith's lab at Imperial (now at Cambridge) identifying DNA-PK as a DNA sensor of the Vaccinia Virus genome and, importantly, identified the viral protein that countered it.
Nick has moved with his new family to Edinburgh where he will complete his medical training and maybe return to the bench one day.
Sneha Anand Post Doctoral Research Associate 2017
Sneha joined us to work on HCMV and cyclosporins for a short time before moving to a new position with Prof. Terry Rabbits at Oxford.
Liane Dupont Research Technician 2014-2015
Liane stayed on after her undergraduate project to continue her studies of CMV biology.
She then moved to Cambridge on a Wellcome Trust PhD studentship to study host defence mechanisms against viral infection in Prof. Paul Lehner's laboratory. Liane is currently a Post Doctoral researcher with Prof. Mike Malim at Kings, London.
Gokhan Tut Research Technician 2013-2014
Gokhan joined us from Imperial instantly tuning the lab radio to Magic FM. We finally worked out how to change it when Gokhan left to start his PhD at Warwick University and is currently a Post Doctoral researcher in Prof. Paul Moss's lab in Birmingham.
Amy Jacob Wellcome Summer Student 2014
Amy worked for 8 weeks with us after winning a Wellcome Trust Summer studentship which supports students between the second and third years of their undergraduate studies to carry out original research in a host lab. Amy went back to get her degree and an MSc and is now studying for a PhD with NIBSC/Imperial in the HSV laboratory of Mike Nicol.
