Dr Erin Lim obtained both her Bachelor’s in Science (Hons)-Microbiology and pursued her PhD in Medical Biotechnology from Universiti Putra Malaysia with a National Science Fellowship from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. She was a lecturer at the International Medical University under the School of Pharmacy prior to joining Perdana University, PU-RCSI as a Senior Lecturer. Her main research interests include immunological analyses of disease, vaccination and treatment models in animals as well as preliminary screening, isolating and identifying molecules which are produced by bacteria or natural products which could potentially function as antibiotics. Dr Erin’s current ongoing collaborations are with the Agro Biotechnology Institute, Universiti Putra Malaysia and the International Medical University. She hopes her work will support discovery of therapeutics in the clinical setting and assist in the combat against the burden of antibiotic resistance. Her other research interests include development of subunit vaccines.
