Histology samples (tissue or cells) are prepped to be visualized under a microscope. This technique is important to study structures in both animal and plant material!
Nathan trained at the University of Glasgow (BSc Hons Immunology) before undertaking his PhD at the University of Sheffield in skin biology. He carried out his doctoral work around developing skin models for testing novel anti-adhesion therapeutics against S. aureus infection. Nathan is a Research Fellow at A*STAR Infectious Diseases Labs (Singapore) and his interests revolve around understanding the host-pathogen interactions between human skin and arboviruses. Understanding these early interactions will provide insight into how early interactions dictate later stage pathogenesis.
