Jack Saunders

PhD Student

I am a DPhil student supervised by Prof Lambe in the Oxford Vaccine Group. My research focuses on investigating the immune response in both humans and animals against emerging pathogens including Crimean-Congo haemorhagic fever virus (CCHFV) and other closely related bunyaviruses including Nairobi sheep disease virus (NSDV) to aid vaccine design. This works aims to develop and progress novel vaccines against CCHFV and NSDV, and involves exploring new assays to assess humoral immunity and vaccine efficacy.

Before my PhD, I worked at the Jenner Institute as a Research Assistant in the Emerging Pathogens Group on CCHFV and SARS-CoV-2 humoral responses. I completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at the University of Exeter. I then completed my Master's degree in Integrated Immunology at the University of Oxford, involving a research project that explored murine T-cell responses to Chlamydia trachomatis infection.
