Focussing on optical imaging targeting proteases that are overexpressed in inflammatory diseases
Produced good results and a publication in the first year.
Working on developing a NIR probe.
Synthesised a compound that can detect Neutrophil Extracellular Traps and getting good results in vitro and in cells. Exploring applicability to COVID and multiple sclerosis through collaboration.
I really like working in collaboration – I learn so much through it. Collaboration is essential for publishing in biology – for example, some of the other people in the project produced the images for a paper, which I never could have gotten without their experience.
