Dr Phanramphoei Namprachan Frantz aka DR. JIBBY
Postdoctoral researcher with the Innovation Lab Vaccines, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
Dr. Jibby is a postdoctoral researcher with the Innovation Lab Vaccines at Institut Pasteur in Paris, France. Jibby received her PhD from Wayne State University, School of Medicine in microbial pathogenesis with the support of a Thai Government Scholarship. After receiving her PhD, she returned to Thailand to work as a research scientist at BIOTEC (www.biotec.or.th/en/) in the field of virology and vaccine development. In 2011, Jibby started to study the pathogenesis of the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV). She was a part of the team which was the first group to succeed in creating an infectious cDNA clone of PEDV. In 2014, she began to work at the Institut Pasteur in France with funding from a Franco-Thai Fellowship to develop a measles-vector based dengue vaccine. This subsequently created the first collaboration between Institut Pasteur and BIOTEC to develop a vaccine against PEDV. The following year, she successfully applied for an MSCA Individual Fellowship to continue her work on the pig vaccine project at Institut Pasteur.
