Isabella Ferreira

Trainee Type: 

Isabella Ferreira completed her undergraduate in Genetics and Psychology at the University of Cape Town and her Honours in Genetics at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Growing up in South Africa, she was exposed to the devastation that HIV has caused and felt that she was strategically positioned to continue her studies in HIV research and aid in the fight against this pandemic. Her Master’s project is focused on researching the cellular source of the HIV reservoir in lymph nodes from Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) suppressed individuals, as this is thought to be critical for HIV replication and persistence in the face of ART. Ferriera would like to continue her career in the field of infectious diseases.
