A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Bloodstream Trypanosoma brucei cell

About

Sebastian completed his PhD in David Horn’s laboratory in the University of Dundee in 2016, where he studied the way in which African trypanosomes evade the immune system by expressing a single variant surface glycoprotein gene (VSG) from their vast genomic repertoire (~2,000 genes). 

Seb joined the Trypanosome Cell Biology Unit (Philippe Bastin) in February 2017 with a Pasteur Roux-Cantarini Fellowship to develop microfluidic and single-cell genomic analysis of trypanosomes in collaboration with Andrew Griffiths at ESPCI.

CV

Education:

2013-2016: PhD student at the University of Dundee. Ph.D project: Antigenic variation and monoallelic VSG expression in Trypanosoma brucei.

2012-2013: MRC funded PhD student at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK. *In 2013 the Horn lab moved to the University of Dundee, Scotland.

2007-2012: 1st Class MSci (Hons) Parasitology, University of Glasgow. Including 1 year in Prof. David Horn’s Laboratory at LSHTM.

Teaching / training

• Biology of Parasitism, Teaching assistant, Woods Hole Massachusetts, USA, August 2016. I assisted in running the Biology of Parasitism module where I was required to supervise both PhD students and Post-docs in trypanosome manipulation and molecular biology techniques. I also trained students in bioinformatics, including mapping Illumina sequencing data using my bespoke scripts and quantitative image analysis.

• Recombinant DNA Techniques & Advanced Practical Training in Molecular Biology courses, London School of Hygiene and Tropical medicine, 2012. I assisted in the running of two Masters Degree modules where I was required to supervise groups of Masters degree students and demonstrate molecular biology techniques such as PCR and molecular cloning.

• I have also trained several post-doctoral staff members in use of the UNIX command line and Illumina sequencing data analysis at the University of Dundee.

International meetings:

• British Society for Parasitology, České Budějovice, Czech Republic: 2016 – Poster

• Kinetoplastid Molecular Cell Biology Conference, Woods Hole, MA, USA: 2015 – Poster

• British Society for Parasitology, Cambridge, UK: 2014 – Poster

• Kinetoplastid Molecular Cell Biology Conference, Woods Hole, MA, USA: 2013 – Talk

• Kinetoplastid Molecular Cell Biology Conference, Woods Hole, MA, USA: 2011 – Poster

Awards

2015 – Travel award from University of Dundee to attend the Kinetoplastid Molecular Cell Biology Conference in Woods Hole, MA, USA.

2011 – Pfizer prize for best MSci work placement year.

2008 – Dean’s prize for students with highest marks, prize included two weeks of lab experience with Prof. Jeremy Mottram.
