Dr Tessa Sinnige
Tessa Sinnige is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Jesus College researching protein folding, misfolding, and aggregation.
My main interest is in protein folding, misfolding, and aggregation. Using the nematode C. elegans as a model organism, I study how protein aggregation is linked to toxicity and neurodegeneration.
Furthermore, I am interested in the application of biophysical techniques to obtain high resolution structural information of misfolded protein species in vivo.
