Conor Graham is Postgraduate Research Student in Biomedical Sciences within Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Conor studied a BSc in Biochemistry at the University of Essex and specialised in microbiology for his third year project. After this, he developed a desire to research the mechanisms of antibiotic tolerance, naturally leading him to study an MRes at the University Of Southampton. Currently he is still looking at the mechanisms of antibiotic tolerance at a PhD level.  

Academic Qualifications

2017-Present: PhD Microbiology, University of Southampton, UK.
2016-2017: MRes Advanced Biological Science, University Of Southampton, UK.
2013-2016: BSc Biochemistry, University of Essex, UK.

Research interests

In a biofilm, there is a concentration gradient of nutrients caused by the rapidly proliferating cells at the edge of the biofilm inhibiting nutrient penetration into the centre. Recent evidence has linked this to antibiotic tolerance, so as a result, I am currently studying the effects of nutrient limitation on the antibiotic susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. 

PhD Supervisor: Professor Jeremy Webb
PhD Research: The Role of Nutrient Starvation on the Antibiotic Susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
PhD Funding: School of Biological Sciences, university of Southampton.
