Research summary

Dr. Angela Nobbs is a Lecturer in Oral Microbiology within the School of Oral and Dental Sciences. Her research interests focus on the mechanisms by which Streptococcus bacteria are able to colonize and cause disease within the human host. These include determining the molecular basis of streptococcal interactions with other members of the oral microflora, such as the fungus Candida albicans, and with host epithelial and endothelial cells, in terms of adherence/invasion, biofilm formation and modulation of cell signalling responses.

Angela Nobbs received her Bsc (Hons) in Applied Microbiology at the University of Manchester in 1999. She was awarded a PhD in Molecular Microbiology at the University of Bristol in 2003, where her studies focused on streptococcal interactions with human epithelial cells and mechanisms of streptococcal colonization. This theme was continued with her first postdoctoral appointment at the University of Minnesota, where she worked on the role of streptococcal surface adhesins in mediating interbacterial competition, and on characterization of housekeeping transpeptidase sortase A. She then expanded this area to investigate the role of sortase A in pilus assembly by group ...
