Postdoctoral fellow

Department of Epidemiology

Fredrick Nindo holds B.Sc in Biomedical Sciences from Maseno University, Kenya; M.Sc in Bioinformatics from South African National Bioinformatics Institute (SANBI) based at the University of Western Cape, Bellville, South Africa and PhD in Bioinformatics from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. He has broad research interests in the use of Bioinformatics approaches in tackling pressing issues surrounding the Genomic Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases; particularly the use of Pathogen Phylogenomics in understanding the emergence, establishment and spread of infectious diseases and how integrating genomic data with associated metadata can reveal more insights for strategic mitigation of infectious diseases than either of the datasets alone.

Fredrick Nindo’s Research at IDEEL involves undertaking bioinformatics analyses of genomics data generated from high-throughput sequencing platforms to gain insights into genomic diversity of the Outer Membrane Proteins (OMPeome) of T. pallidum subs. pallidum to inform selection of possible targets for Syphillis Vaccine Innovation.
