Karita Ambrose, PhD
Head of US Medical Science Liaisons, Seqirus
Karita Ambrose has research experience in both academic and pharmaceutical environments. Upon completion of a doctorate in Microbiology from the Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham where she studied streptococcal pathogenesis, Karita pursued post-doctoral studies at Emory University. She trained in the Division of Infectious Diseases where she studied Neisseria meningitidis antimicrobial resistance mechanisms and taught courses in biology and microbiology. In 2003, she began her career in the pharmaceutical industry as a research scientist. She worked in vaccine discovery research in molecular biology where she designed constructs to map monoclonal antibodies used for clinical assays and established a robotic high throughput DNA sequencing protocol for meningococcal vaccine candidates. In 2008, Karita switched her focus from discovery research in vaccines to medical affairs. Since that time, she has launched 5 vaccines, served as a key clinical/scientific resource to vaccine experts in the field, held various subject matter expert roles on her team and assists regularly in the creation of educational and presentation materials in support of internal and external customer needs.
