Simon Butterworth


Simon completed a BA and MSci in biochemistry at the University of Cambridge. After graduating, he worked as a research assistant in Ross Waller's laboratory at the University of Cambridge, studying the unique biology of the single-celled intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii, a pathogen which infects billions of people globally.

Simon is now a PhD student in Moritz Treeck's laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute. He now investigates the host-pathogen interactions of T. gondii, using CRISPR knockout screening and single-cell RNA sequencing to determine how the parasites reprogram the host cell to facilitate infection.
