Roxann is a scientist from New Brunswick (Canada). Her primary goal is to educate people about viruses and how to find strategies to live with them, so that scientists like her can find solutions. As such, she can be seen in the “Pandemic” series on Netflix. At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Roxann assisted the Government of New Brunswick in implementing protocols to mitigate COVID-19 in the province’s airports.
Roxann holds a bachelor’s in applied biotechnology, a Masters in Biochemistry and is finishing a PhD(c) in Life sciences. Her research has led to international collaborations in Marseille where the research on hydroxychloroquine originated. She has also collaborated with experts in antibody creation in San Francisco at DistributedBio who created the Centivax technology to fight COVID-19. She currently lives in Boston where she makes monoclonal antibodies against COVID-19 by phage display for “Dynamicure“. She is also collaborating with a large biotech company and three hospitals to create a faster and easier method for isolating serum antibodies from patients recovered from COVID-19.
