Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Immunity and Assay Development
Sabine Lauer obtained a PhD in Biological Sciences with specialty in Immunobiology from the University of Leipzig, Germany (1992) and a MS in Food Chemistry from the Technical University Dresden, Germany (1987). After obtaining her PhD she worked as a post-doctoral researcher on lipid and protein transport in erythrocyte-infected with the human malaria parasite P. falciparum in Dr. Kasturi Haldar’s laboratory at Stanford University (1993-1998). From 1998 until 2001 she investigated molecular assemblies on cells and microspheres using kinetic flow cytometry as a postdoctoral researcher with Dr. Larry Sklar (UNM) and John Nolan (LANL). She has been a technical staff member at LANL since 2001. She has experience in biology of infections and intoxications (biological toxins), immunology, and assay development (especially flow cytometric). She has published in these areas and holds a patent on a potential new drug for treatment of human malaria.
