Marwa M. Hassan Australian Society for Microbiology Annual Scientific Meeting 2018

Marwa M. Hassan

Marwa submitted her PhD from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB), University of Queensland (UQ), 2018. She is a diagnostic microbiologist with experience in materials science and its diagnostic applications in nanomedicine. During her PhD, she developed different culture-independent diagnostic platforms to advance the current field and allow rapid detection of bacterial sepsis. She also developed a simple diagnostic assay for the detection of TB, during her Master's degree. Marwa worked on a diverse range of molecular biology techniques and was a senior researcher on a funded grant, before starting her PhD. She is interested in bacterial pathogenesis, single-cell approaches, persistence, quorum sensing, phages, biofilms as well as advancing current detection approaches. She is also interested in science communication, teaching and currently an ASM communications ambassador (Twitter: @marwa_hassan1). Marwa is currently a demonstrator at UQ, awaiting her PhD conferral while looking for opportunities. She also have a Master in Science, major in Biotechnology, and a Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Email:
