Carlos Maluquer de Motes
Principal InvestigatorI earned my PhD in the University of Barcelona, where I am from. After post-doctoral training in the University of Pennsylvania (US), Imperial College London and University of Cambridge I settled down in Surrey in 2014 to start my own lab. Now my job is to boss people around! 😉
I joined the lab in 2019 as a PhD student funded by a studentship from Dstl. My aim is to develop better diagnostic tools to identify and characterise poxvirus infections.
I am doing my MSc Medical Microbiology on the poxvirus Ankyrin proteins and how they manipulate host cellular pathways.
I am a first year MSc student working on vaccinia virus antagonism of cytosolic DNA sensing, particularly focusing on the recently described viral cGAMP nuclease gene poxin/vSchlafen.
