Dr. Carolina Verissimo graduated in Biomedical Pathology and obtained her Master’s degree in Agricultural and Environmental Microbiology in Brazil. Carolina received a joint-PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology from PUCRS, Brazil and Griffith University, Australia. Her research focused on the characterization of glycans from helminth parasites to improve the diagnosis of angistrongyliasis and schistosimiasis infections. Carolina joined the Molecular Parasitology Laboratory in 2017, then at Queen’s University Belfast. Her current work at NUI Galway focuses on the study of parasite (helminth) proteins and glycans involved in processes of infection, host immune regulation and pathology.
