Guad is a graduate student in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UBC, and her graduate research is based at the BC Centre for Disease Control. Under the supervision of Dr. Inna Sekirov and Dr. Mel Krajden, she is investigating the antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 infections in prenatal women to understand how pre-existing immune responses to endemic coronaviruses can affect their immune response, as well as how these may impact perinatal outcomes. Guad completed her BSc in Biology in 2020, and her undergraduate work involved antibody and herpesvirus research. Her research interests broadly include infectious diseases, clinical diagnostics, and public health.
