BiographyNatalie Netzler is a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales, Australia. Her project focuses on identifying antiviral compounds for norovirus and other caliciviruses. In particular, her interest lies in the discovery of broad-spectrum antivirals with the potential to rapidly treat several clinically significant viruses for which we currently have no antivirals. Natalie is also a tutor on the 2nd year Microbiology and 3rd year Virology courses at UNSW.
Following a BSc in Biology (1998), Natalie completed an MSc in virology with first class Honors (2000), from the University of Waikato, New Zealand. Following graduation, Natalie worked as a Research Assistant at the biotechnology company, Genesis Research and Development for several years, investigating ligands involved in plant flowering and siRNA inhibition targeting drug resistance.
