Dr Angela Nobbs

Biography

Angela Nobbs received her Bsc (Hons) in Applied Microbiology at the University of Manchester in 1999. She was awarded a PhD in Molecular Microbiology at the University of Bristol in 2003, where her studies focused on streptococcal interactions with human epithelial cells and mechanisms of streptococcal colonization. This theme was continued with her first postdoctoral appointment at the University of Minnesota, where she worked on the role of streptococcal surface adhesins in mediating interbacterial competition, and on characterization of housekeeping transpeptidase sortase A. She then expanded this area to investigate the role of sortase A in pilus assembly by group B Streptococcus with a Marie Curie Fellowship at Novartis Vaccines, Siena. She returned to the University of Bristol in 2008 and was appointed Lecturer in Oral Microbiology in 2009. Current projects focus on the interactions of streptococci with the fungus Candida albicans, with host epithelial and endothelial cells, and on the impact of such interactions on microbial colonization and pathogenesis.
