Research interests

Amy Bleakley graduated from Plymouth University, UK, with a First Class Honours degree in Biomedical Science in 2015. She is currently a laboratory Research Assistant and PhD student in the Child and Maternal Health division at Menzies School of Health Research. Her research involves investigation of the microbiological and immunological processes underlying the development of respiratory infections in children and aims to understand how early-life immune development contributes to an increased risk of infection. She is currently leading the laboratory component of a randomised control trial evaluating the use of perinatal vitamin D supplementation (D-Kids) as a preventative strategy against early childhood respiratory infections. Her PhD is nested within the D-Kids trial and will characterise neonatal immune responses to common paediatric respiratory pathogens with a focus on the immunomodulatory role of vitamin D supplementation.
