Laura first met Tim Leighton when she was at Primary School. Tim gave a talk on dolphins and science. In the summer holidays at the end of her first year, Laura approached Tim and asked if she could work with him on a science experiment as an intern, so together they measured ultrasound fields around London as part of the HEFUA project. Laura got insight into the care needed in recording and transcribing data, and how important it was to record all environmental conditions, and ensure calibrations were safe, because with field measurements you only get one shot. At the end of the summer, as Laura started her second year studying for A-levels in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Classical Civilizations, she was invited by Tim to attend NAMRIP’s launch conference (December 2014) where Laura was particularly struck by the Exhibition. Laura is currently in her first year at the University of East Anglia, reading for a BSc in Natural Sciences, and says: “The multidisciplinary approach embraced by NAMRIP inspired me to take my current course in which I will get a firm grounding in the full spectrum of sciences. I have discussed AMR and the current measures for infection prevention with colleagues on other courses and the need for a bridge between the different approaches and concerns was clear”.
