Dr Jocelyn Choo

Jocelyn Choo is an early career microbiologist with a research interest in microbial genetics and microbial dynamics. She completed her Honours degree at Monash University and started her PhD studies in 2009, working under the supervision of Prof. Julian I. Rood and Dr. Milena M. Awad. 

During her PhD degree, she focused on characterizing the heme uptake systems of an anaerobic bacterium that causes gas gangrene and understanding their importance in the pathogenesis of infection. Building upon her molecular biology and genetics background, she will apply these tools to investigate the association between the human microbiome on human health/diseases and drug therapies.
