Dr. Annette Angel has done her Ph.D. from Desert Medicine Research Centre (Present NIIRNCD) Jodhpur, Rajasthan (affiliated to Jai Narain Vyas University, Jodhpur, Rajasthan) in the year 2012. Her doctoral work pertained to studies of macromolecular factors to detect dengue transmission or blocking proteins in Aedes mosquitoes wherein she reported two mosquito proteins i.e. Myosin heavy chain, non-muscle or smooth muscle of 224.1 kDa and myosin heavy chain, muscle of 224.3 kDa. Of these two proteins, non-muscle proteins had a larger structure than muscle protein which had comparatively a smaller structure. The former protein was observed to be associated with virus transmission blocking whereas muscle protein with smaller structure observed to be with virus presence. Her Masters was in the field of Zoology. She is an expert in field as well as laboratory work on Dengue and H1N1 viruses. Dr. Annette Angel has participated as a Tutor in number of training programs on molecular diagnosis of Dengue and H1N1 viruses. Dr. Angel, has also participated in establishing molecular diagnostic laboratory of H1N1 viruses in DMRC. She was awarded the prestigious ICMRs Post Doctoral Research Fellowship in the year 2014.
Later she joined National Centre for Disease Control, Delhi as Assistant Director in the Centre for Arboviral and Zoonotic Diseases wherein she was actively involved in Research, Training, Administrative and Academic responsibilities. Beside working on Dengue and H1N1 viruses, she has also worked in areas of infectious diseases like Chikungunya, Japanese Encephalitis, Toxoplasmosis, Neurocysticercosis, Echinococcosis, Leishmaniasis, Rickettsial diseases, Leptospirosis, Brucellosis etc.
She has number of National and International publications to her credit and has authored in book chapters. Dr. Annette is a reviewer in journals of National and International level. She has also participated in training activities at the National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune and National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research (NICPR), Noida.
