BSc (Hons); PhD
Natalia Sampaio obtained a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biotechnology (Curtin University, Perth 2007) and Honours in Pharmacology (University of Western Australia 2008). She obtained her PhD from the University of Melbourne and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in 2016. There, she investigated virulence and immunomodulatory factors of the malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. Natalia's interests are in innate immunity to pathogens and host-pathogen interactions. She is currently investigating the pathogen recognition receptor MDA5, and how it detects viral infections.
