Dr Irina Ivanova

Postdoctoral Scientist

Irina is working on the chemical synthesis of bacterial sugars for the preparation of glycoconjugate vaccine.

Previously she worked on the synthesis of multivalent oligomeric triazole-linked glycoconjugates as anti-pathogen agents and theĀ development of simple and easily accessible fluorescence-based methodology to assess activities of membrane-bound glycosyltransferases in the benign protozoan alga Euglena gracilis.

Her main research areas are:

  • Carbohydrate synthesis
  • Fluorescence-based method development
  • Bioconjugation
  • Surface immobilisation
