Subita Balaram

Research Assistant

Subita graduated from Sahrdaya College of Engineering and Technology under University of Calicut, India with a Bachelors of Technology in Biotechnology Engineering and then completed a Masters in Research in Biotechnology from the University of Essex, UK. Her MRes project with Prof Nelson Fernández involved the investigation of the association of glycophosphatidyl inositol-anchored CD14 receptor and the transmembrane receptor, TLR4, involved in the innate immune recognition of LPS on THP1 cells. In the Fugger lab, she is mainly responsible for the genotyping of complex transgenic in vivo systems that are employed across a range of different projects. She uses High-throughput PCR and Real-time quantitative PCR based genotyping technologies, DNA sequencing, as well as the Polychromatic Flow Cytometry-based phenotyping technology for the characterisation of various transgenic systems.
