Josie Gibson

The University of Sheffield

I am currently in my first position as a postdoctoral researcher at The University of Sheffield. I completed my PhD, at both The University of Sheffield and at A*Star labs in Singapore, which focused on using cellular level imaging to understand the role of host cell autophagy in the control of intracellular pathogens. I am interested in understanding host-pathogen interactions in infection, specifically how pathogens can start the initial infection, and how the dynamics of infection change over time. My current research includes both fungal and bacterial pathogens, and how they are able to evade host immune defences to cause infection. I am mainly focussed on microbiology, but my other key interests are microscopy, autophagy, immune cells and antimicrobial resistance.
