Claudia Barnes

Honours Student

Background

Claudia completed her Bachelor of Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne in 2019, majoring in pharmacology.

This year, she joins the Gilson/Crabb laboratory to undertake an Honours project looking at how the inhibition of the sodium efflux pump PfATP4 suppresses red blood cell invasion by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. PfATP4 is emerging as a promising target for much-needed novel antimalarial drugs.
