Dr Rinie Bajracharya

Postdoctoral Researcher
Inflammasome Lab



Rinie completed her PhD at the Queensland Brain Institute (University of Queensland) under the supervision of Dr Rebecca Nisbet and Professor Jürgen Götz where she explored tau-specific immunotherapeutic strategies for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Continuing her interest in Alzheimer’s disease, Rinie then joined the Inflammasome Lab as a Postdoctoral researcher in June 2022 where she is investigating the role of inflammasome activation in Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis and whether it can serve as a target for therapeutic intervention..
