Microbiology & Infectious Disease

Understanding infectious disease from molecular mechanisms to population studies, and addressing the global challenge of antimicrobial resistance.

Cluster Leads: Dr Antonia Sagona, Dr Chris Rodrigues

Research within the Microbiology & Infectious Disease Cluster seeks to understand microbes at the molecular level, including bacterial cell function and host-pathogen interactions, and the implications this has for infectious diseases within populations. We use approaches including microbiology, enzymology, biophysics, structural biology, computational modelling and epidemiology to explore fundamental biology and address global challenges such as antimicrobial resistance and prediction of disease outbreaks in a changing world.

The cluster sits in School of Life Sciences but researchers from other departments are warmly welcomed!
