West Yorkshire, UK
Scientific Lead, Una Health Ltd.
A long time (i.e., so long I can’t remember!)
I provide scientific and clinical expertise to the strategic team at Una Health, in particular leadership on the antimicrobial resistance landscape and role of point-of-care diagnostics.
The favourite part of my job is finding out things! I enjoy the systematic nature of planning and researching to answer a particular question. If I can condense a large amount of information/data into a succinct summary that someone who isn’t an expert can understand, then I’m happy!
I’ve cycled the Way of the Roses, the 170 mile route from Morecambe to Bridlington (over 3 days) (the selfie is taken in Morecambe at the start of the ride). After all, I’m originally from Lancashire and now live in Yorkshire!
Being part of a global community that is working together to fight antimicrobial resistance. Bacteria know no boundaries and everyone has a crucial part to play if we are going to sustainably change practice to protect these life-saving antimicrobial drugs. I am proud to be a member of BSAC, a pioneering society that leads the way by providing free society membership, open access to quality resources and research articles, and encourages all healthcare professionals, politicians and public to take action.
