Characterising the preterm microbiota, and the effects of probiotics in restoring “normal” microbiota development over time.
My interest in microbiology was cemented back in 2008 while taking part in a placement year within a Clinical Microbiology Laboratory at a local NHS Trust Hospital as a part of my undergraduate degree, BSc Biomedical Science from the University of Essex. Since graduating, I have worked in a variety of laboratories undertaking specialist microbiology reference and research work before joining the Hall laboratory in March 2018 as a Project Scientist.
In collaboration with the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, my work will involve looking at how probiotics can promote and restore a ‘healthy’ microbiota in premature infants.
