Amy Chan

PhD Student, Inflammasome Lab

 

 

After obtaining First Class Honours in 2014 in the Toth lab, Amy completed a year of voluntary research to explore her interests in the field of immunology. Working in collaboration with the Institute for Glycomics at Griffith University, she developed a novel prophylactic vaccine against streptococcus pyogenes. Amy joined the Inflammasome Lab in 2016 for her PhD studies. Her PhD project is unravelling the mysteries of the little understood “non-canonical” inflammasome.
