Biography

Dr Bettiol has more than 20 years of university teaching and medical research experience. She has been a member of the School of Medicine for several years, working in various roles in the area of medical microbiology and public health.

Following her PhD in Medical Sciences she completed three years of postdoctoral work at Yale University in the Department of Cell Biology using Toxoplasma gondii as a model for malaria research. This was followed by a year of postdoctoral work at Hopital Necker Children's in Paris identifying new genes involved in juvenile kidney disorders and a six-month internship with the WHO Human Genome Programme (HGN) in Geneva.

In 2009 she completed her Masters of Public Health at Curtin University in WA that included an elective period with the Oxford Centre for Monitoring and Diagnosis in Primary Care (MaDOx), Department of Primary Care at the University of Oxford. She held a Senior Lecturer position in the Department of Psychology, Social Work and Public Health, at Oxford Brookes University UK (2011-2014) before returning to Australia.

She has played a key role in developing the Masters of Public Health course (online) at the School of Medicine and her appointment as Lecturer in Microbiology and Public Health involves teaching undergraduate, master and doctoral levels.

Detection of activated Tasmanian devil cytotoxic lymphocytes by a rapid RNA detection assay (2016)$34,999
Description
Monitoring the immune response of vaccinated Tasmanian devils requires analysis of cell mediated immunity .The current assays we use demonstrate killing of DFTD cells but fail to reveal cytotoxic cell activation and themeans of cell death. We plan incorporate a new assay that employs fluorescent in situ hybridisation andbranched DNA amplification technique for simultaneous measurement of RNA transcripts in single cells usingflow cytometry. The advantages of the proposed assay is that it provides a rapid and biologically relevantanalysis of fresh blood samples taken from Tasmanian devils and measures the activity level of these cellsequivalent to when they were in circulation. This will determine if cytotoxic cells are activated to induce targetcell death. We will be able to analyse key gene expression markers for activation such as IFN-gamma andLAMP-I.

Up-regulating MHC expression of DFTD cells in vivo by treating established tumours with imiquimod (2015)$28,000
Description
DFTD cells avoid immune recognition and destruction because they turn off important genes. Recent research discovered that imiquimod, a drug used to treat skin cancer, can turn on these genes. This project will determine if imiquimod makes DFTD cells visible to the Tasmanian devil's immune system, thereby inducing an immune response.

Activation of innate immune cells to promote a protective immune response against devil facial tumour cells in murine model of DFTD (2013)$35,000
Description
This project will determine if stimulants of the innate immune system can protect against DFTD. Consequently it will assist in the development of a vaccine. Due to the limited availability of Tasmanian devils for vaccine research, the research will utilise a mouse model of DFTD.
