The Inflammasome Lab is excited to welcome Grace Pamo Lawrence!

The Inflammasome Lab is pleased to welcome Grace Pamo Lawrence! Grace hails from... the Sweet Lab, next door! Grace takes on the invaluable function of lab Research Assistant while also being involved in several projects examining the signalling pathways underlying NLRP3 inflammasome activation.


From Grace: “Finding a position as research assistant in the Schroder laboratory following my Bachelor of Science has been a thoroughly rewarding experience - not only to be able to commence work on interesting research projects with real-world applications, but also to interact and collaborate with an impressive collection of equally passionate researchers. I’m fortunate to be working with such a talented and diverse group of scientists on the molecular pathways of inflammation!”


Grace's Bio: Grace completed a Bachelor of Science and Arts (Biomedical Science, Psychology, and Writing) from the University of Queensland in 2017. In 2018, Grace was awarded first class honours from the University of Queensland for her research examining the interplay between mitochondrial dynamics and macrophage antimicrobial pathways in the Sweet Group (Institute for Molecular Bioscience). Grace joined the Inflammasome Lab as a Research Assistant in 2019. Her project aims to better understand pathways of NLRP3 inflammasome priming.

ABOUT Inflammasome Lab

Inflammasome Lab is a group of researchers led by Prof Kate Schroder at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland.
We seek to unravel the secrets of inflammasomes – protein complexes at the heart of inflammation and disease – to allow for new therapies to fight human diseases.
