Oxford University Statutory Chair of Microbiology and Fellow of Wadham College
Susan Lea Group at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology
Professor Susan Lea joined Wadham in October 2013.
Susan is primarily interested in what structural biology can help us understand about the way in which pathogens and their hosts first encounter each other. More recently this work has led to potential therapeutic opportunities with structures suggesting opportunities for novel vaccination strategies.
Much time out of work is spent helping organise choirs for children from 4 to 18 and singing or playing herself when the need to move music stands and seats for others passes.
An undergraduate and graduate at New College, Susan became a Fellow at Linacre, St Hilda’s and, most recently, Brasenose.
