Dr Flynn has a keen interest in both virology and immunology research; in particular in how HIV enters cells of the immune system.
HIV medical research; virology; immunology.
She holds a position on the editorial board of AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses and was awarded a Victoria Fellowship for a project on the development of a novel technique of HIV transmission via cell-cell transfer with the aim to apply this technique to other infectious disease projects.
Her collaborations with the National Institute of Communicable Diseases in Johannesburg (South Africa), the Sir Dunn School of Pathology (UK) and the French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) have provided her with further insight into HIV research. In particular, how to design new therapies and preventative measures which are able to target key cells for HIV and limit the development of viral reservoirs to achieve better health for poor and vulnerable communities worldwide.
Dr Flynn was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015 and is based in the School of Science.
