Kirstin Bilham


Research Assistant

Short Biography: I obtained my BSc in Biology from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, before moving to Oxford to study for an MSc in Biology. I stayed in Oxford for my DPhil, investigating the roles of innate immunity and oxidative stress in shaping life history traits in the European badger, a joint project between Prof David Macdonald at the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit and Dr Adrian Smith’s lab in Zoology. I joined the Genome Integrity Lab as a research assistant in January 2017, where I provide research support for post-docs as well as running a project investigating protein interactions between the members of the SHIELDIN complex.


Research interests: Transgenic models, protein purification and biochemistry.
