Alina Zamoshnikova


PhD Student, Inflammasome Lab



Alina completed her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Kyiv, Ukraine, specialising in biochemistry and molecular biology. Her interest in cell signalling brought her to Professor Svetlana Sidorenko’s lab where her BSc research project focused on CD150-mediated signalling in B cells. Her MSc research involved characterising a new receptor, FcR-like 6, found on the surface of T cells. After her MSc studies, Alina applied her understanding of the adaptive immune responses by working in the R&D group of a biotech start-up company, developing ELISA-based diagnostic kits for human infectious diseases. In 2012, Alina commenced her PhD in the Inflammasome Lab, switching to innate immunity and inflammation research. She is currently writing her thesis that focuses on the molecular and functional characterisation of NLRP12.


Working in the Inflammasome Lab has been a great experience. It is a fantastic team of people, passionate about their research, very supportive and generous in sharing their expertise.
