Om Rininta Firdaus

Rininta Firdaus obtained her MSc in Molecular Medicine from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (2010), and her PhD in Molecular Microbiology from University of Nottingham (2019). Her PhD thesis investigated the molecular pathogenesis of Neisseria meningitidis, and the interaction between the bacteria and host endothelial cells. Currently, she is doing her postdoc at the Department of Biomaterials from University of Gothenburg to evaluate new tools for diagnosis and treatment of biomaterials associated infections. She is also investigating the role of extracellular vesicles in the pathogenesis of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococus epidermidis.

Research interests: molecular pathogenesis, biomaterials associated infections, biofilms (mechanisms and quorum sensing).
