Event details

Led by Professor Rob Read, this is the third in a series of workshops focussed around Theme 1 - 'Understanding resistant bacteria in context of host'.

The workshop is open to all PhD students, Early Career Researchers, Academics and Clinicians within the NAMRIP network. It is an opportunity for members to hear about the research currently underway within Theme 1 topics which includes Biofilms and Nutrition. There is plenty of time to discuss plans and ideas for working together and the chance to network with fellow NAMRIP members from across the University over a free buffet lunch.

The first Theme 1 workshop was held in November 2015 and included talks from Professor Robert Read, Dr Xunli Zhang, Dr Sandra Wilks, Dr Jacqui Prieto and Mr Rami Salib. At the second workshop in April this year, Professor Robert Read, Dr Jay Laver and Dr Ray Allan all gave project updates as well as an update from the chair of NAMRIP Professor Tim Leighton.

Draft Programme

  • Dr Jay Laver, Research Fellow, Clinical and Experimental Sciences: 'Biosafety considerations for human challenge with genetically modified N. lactamica'
  • Professor Paul Elkington, Professor of Respiratory Medicine: 'Studying multidrug resistant tuberculosis in the context of the host'
