Sara Clohisey Hendry

Senior Postdoc

Sara graduated from Trinity College Dublin after which she completed a PhD studying determinants of cytoskeletal function in Drosophila at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, Edinburgh.

Sara joined the Baillie lab in 2014 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow.

Sara explores the host-pathogen interaction, which is integral to understanding why some people become very sick when they are infected with pathogens. Previously, she has focused on the interaction between influenza A virus and human macrophages. More recently, Sara is focusing on how CRISPR technology can alter gene expression in lung tissue to see how it might change the response of the cells to pathogens.

In her spare time she likes to work in the garden and do yoga.
