Tamsin completed her Bachelor of Science Advanced with Honours at Monash University in 2015, with a double major in immunology and microbiology.
Her honours project was completed with the Tachedjian lab and focused on the bat intrinsic immune response to infections with Ebola virus.
Tamsin is currently a Monash PhD student in the Tachedjian lab, continuing her investigation into bat immunity.
In the course of her PhD, Tamsin aims to examine the expression and function of the immune protein tetherin in the context of the bat immune response to Ebola and Marburg viruses - pathogens which bats harbour but for which they do not show any clinical disease symptoms.
