Dr Simone Reynolds

Dr Simone Reynolds is an Early Career Research Fellow in the Scabies Lab at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.

Her research focuses on characterising proteases of the parasitic skin mite Sarcoptes scabiei in order to identify targets for novel therapeutics.

Employing molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology techniques she has worked extensively on a family of inactivated serine proteases and characterised their role in evasion of the human immune system, in particular the complement system.

Her current research focus is on a family of mite cysteine proteases where she is utilising proteomics and peptide library screening for functional characterisation.
