Postgraduate Research Student in Medical Microbiology

Mr Daniel Noel's photo

Mr Daniel Noel is a Postgraduate Research Student in the field of Medical Microbiology at the University of Southampton. His current research project aims to investigate the biochemical underpinnings of biocide resistance in clinically relevant bacteria, in collaboration with JVS Products.

Daniel studied an MBioSci in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Southampton where he developed a passionate interest and specialised in the fields of medical microbiology and biochemistry. After spending a year facilitating clinical research at Southampton General Hospital, he is now investigating the mechanisms of biocide resistance at a PhD level.

Academic Qualifications:

2018-present: PhD in Medical Microbiology. The University of Southampton, UK.
2013-2017: MBioSci Master of Biomedical Sciences. The University of Southampton, UK.
Masters Dissertation: Protein Overexpression via the E.coli pET Expression System Actively Selects for Mutant Strains.
Undergraduate Dissertation: The Regulation of MDR1 Activity by Extracellular Osmolarity, Oxidative Stress, Potassium Concentration and Sertraline.

Research interests

Antibiotic resistance is a well-understood global medical problem, however there is a large amount of evidence suggesting that bacteria are also becoming increasingly tolerant to other types of biocides, including antiseptics and disinfectants. Broadly speaking my project aims to further our understanding of the various mechanisms that underpin biocide resistance in clinically relevant bacteria using techniques in genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics, with the aim of improving infection prevention protocols.

Supervisor: Professor Bill Keevil, Dr Sandra A Wilks
PhD Research: Understanding and modulating mechanisms of biocide resistance in clinically important bacteria.
Funding: JVS Products, NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre.
