Dr Lauren Eyssen

Staff Scientist

Lauren is a staff scientist in Professor Ray Owens’ group and she will be working on different aspects of nanobody discovery, production and engineering.

She earned her PhD in biochemistry at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) focussing on the characterisation of trypanosome virulence factors and diagnostics. Her first postdoc was carried out at UKZN using phage display for trypanosome diagnostics and was followed by another postdoc in Poland at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology. There, using activity based probes, she was involved in the study of the serine proteases involved in neutropenia caused by different mutations and conditions.
