Alanna Sorenson is a postdoctoral scientist within the Supramolecular and Synthetic Biology Group in the School of Pharmacy and Molecular Sciences, James Cook University. Alanna undertook her bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science at James Cook University and received her PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from James Cook University.
Her primary research interest is in the development of improved diagnostic tests for infectious diseases, with a particular focus on melioidosis. Alanna’s research also focuses on the use of novel techniques such as differential scanning fluorimetry of GFP-tagged proteins to identify new antibiotics specific for the replicative processes of bacteria.
