Carolyne Horner

West Yorkshire, UK
Scientific Lead, Una Health Ltd.

How long have you been a BSAC member?

A long time (i.e., so long I can’t remember!)

What do you do?

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.

One thing you love about your job

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!

One thing your colleagues don't know about you

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!

What does BSAC membership mean to you?

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.

GP? Pharmacist? Researcher? Social Scientist? Whatever field you work in, if you’re committed to fighting infection then we want you to join us as a BSAC Member.
