The Mooney Lab

The University of Edinburgh


Principal Investigator

MScR in Infectious Diseases
Hello! I'm a Master's by Research student who started working at the Mooney Lab in January 2023. I have previously completed a BSc (Hons.) in Infectious Diseases from the University of Edinburgh. Currently, I'm working on a project that focuses on the impact of Malaria on intestinal immunity in mice (in vivo). In my free time I enjoy horse riding and reading!


I've had the privlage to work with some amazing people in the laboratory! Along with my mentor, Prof. Eleanor Riley, I was able to co-lead some great projects during my time at LSHTM and The Roslin Institute. Please feel free to contact any of the previous lab members to get a sense of the lab environment.
