Dr. Nick Waterfield: Recently re-established the research group here at Warwick and is a Reader in Bacterial Pathogenesis, having moved from the University of Bath. Nick's research interests are bacterial pathogenesis, host pathogen interactions, molecular and synthetic biology, and the utilisation of genomic techniques. More recently Nick has become involved in novel healthcare technologies such as biomimetics, probes, and drug delivery systems. Nick completed his PhD at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge in the lab of Richard Le Page in 1995 investigating gene expression and bacteriophage activity in Lactococcus to generate a vaccine. During this time Nick became interested in bacterial toxins and toxin systems (still a main research focus) and moved in to a postdoctoral position at Bath with Richard ffrench-Constant. Nick remained at Bath, becoming a senior lecturer and PI, before moving to Warwick.

Some more detail can be found on Nick's Medical School staff page.

Joe Healey: Joe was a PhD student in the Molecular Organisation and Assembly in Cells Centre for Doctoral Training ("MOAC"). The centre was an interdisciplinary institution that trains PhD students in a huge variety of modern science from computing and mathematical modelling, to biology and analytical chemistry. He is now a PDRA and de facto lab manager for the Waterfield group within Warwick Medical school. Joe is interested in bacterial virulence and particularly in the application of synthetic biology.
