Associations between genetic polymorphisms, innate immune responses, and outcomes from sepsis in Thai patients with melioidosis and S. aureus infection

Project summary

Narisara is based at the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University. Her Fellowship has supported her research on pathogenesis, diagnosis, immune response and host genetic polymorphisms associated with bacterial infections. The project is mainly focused on the hypothesis that polymorphisms affecting Toll-like receptor-mediated responses predispose to excessive inflammation during melioidosis and S. aureus sepsis, and contribute to poor outcomes from these infections.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Intermediate Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
