Nicola Pett

Research Associate, Preclinical

Focus at NTx

Immune response to LNPs


I completed my BSc in Brisbane, Australia, focusing on cell and molecular biology. During this time, I fell in love with research and began my career as a research technician studying cancer immunotherapy. After relocating to Canada, I worked as a research technician at the University of Calgary studying the gut microbiome in the context of diseases such as IBD, cancer and diabetes. More recently, I completed my MSc at UBC in microbiology and immunology, also studying the gut microbiome. My research interests include understanding host-pathogen interactions, the mucosal immune system, and immunotherapy.
