Jeanne was awarded a BSc (Hons) in Herbal Medicine in 2008 from the University of Westminster, and went on to gain an MSc (with distinction) in Pharmacognosy from the London School of Pharmacy (UCL) in 2011. Her Master’s thesis focused on the Quantification of Pyrrolizidine Alkaloid Content in Borago officinalis. She has a keen interest in looking at treatment strategies for infection, due to growing antibiotic resistance.  The PhD study which she is currently working on is related to the investigation of alternative treatments for adult female urinary tract infections, supervised by Professor Michael Moore, Dr Caroline Eyles and Professor Mike Thomas.  Bench-work is being conducted at the London School of Pharmacy under the supervision of Professor Simon Gibbons, and involves pharmaceutical analyses with HPLC, Mass Spec and NMR.

PhD
PhD, funded by the National Institute of Health Research, on alternative treatments for adult female urinary tract infections, supervised by Professor Michael Moore, Dr Caroline Eyles and Professor Mike Thomas.  Bench-work is being conducted at the London School of Pharmacy under the supervision of Professor Simon Gibbons.

Lab-work
The study involves lab-work investigating the antimicrobial properties and quality control of an herbal medicinal product from the plant Arctostaphylos uva-ursi.  The leaves of this plant have been used for hundreds of years for treating the symptoms of urinary tract infections.   The project is linked to a forthcoming clinical trial Alternative Treatments for Adult Female Urinary Tract Infections run by the University of Southampton. 

Qualitative Research Element
Once the trial starts Jeanne will be interviewing both patients and GPs regarding their attitudes towards delayed prescribing of antibiotics whist being offered an alternative treatment strategy.
