Postdoctoral Research Associate - MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis
Ingra has a PhD in Sciences from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Sao Paulo, Department of Infectious and Parasitic Diseases . They have 6 years of experience in portable nanopore sequencing (MinION) and infectious disease genomic-epidemiology surveillance. Their research program is focused on developing novel methods for real-time surveillance of emerging and re-emerging viruses such as Zika, Yellow Fever, Chikungunya, Dengue, Yellow Fever, and recently SARS-CoV-2, reducing the time and complexity of the methods so that they are more easily adopted by the public surveillance centers in countries. Ingra is part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - Unifying COVID-19 Genomics, Serology and Epidemiology in Brazil, the Centre for Arbovirus Discovery, Diagnostics, Genomics, and Epidemiology and the Zika in Brazil Real-Time Analysis projects.
Implementing Fast, Accessible Viral Surveillance With Nanopore Sequencing
In this webinar, you will hear from leaders in the field of microbiology and infectious disease research, who will share their experiences in developing and implementing fast and accessible pathogen surveillance protocols with nanopore sequencing. The protocols presented in this webinar can be leveraged for targeted whole genome sequencing of different viral pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 and monkeypox virus, as well as more broadly for the genomic characterization of known and novel viruses in an untargeted manner.
