Dr Daniel Dorey-Robinson
Daniel graduated from Aberystwyth University with a BSc in Biochemistry in 2011 and Imperial College London with an MSc in the molecular biology and pathology of viruses in 2012. Daniel then undertook his PhD at the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) in conjunction with the University of Surrey looking at virus isolation and full genome sequencing from clinical samples of equine infectious anaemia virus, from which he graduated in 2016. He then worked as a Postdoctoral Scientist in the Rabies, wildlife zoonosis and vector borne disease research group working in and out of ACDP3/SAPO4 containment on Lyssaviruses, Hantaviruses and Flaviviruses. Work varied between bioinformatics analysis, viral genome sequencing, serological testing, vector competence studies and molecular testing.
Daniel joined the Immunogenetics group at The Pirbright Institute in October 2019 as a Bioinformatician working on whole repertoire and single cell antibody sequencing as part of a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation project.
