With a background in Biochemistry, Caron decided to extend her research to a PhD, focusing on HIV research. Using cutting-edge technologies such as live-cell imaging, Caron will be investigating how the virus enters cells, something that to this day remains unclear. Caron has previously held posts at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and Avimune Veterinary Consultants in South Africa.
