You can download PDF versions of our monthly “Bug of the Month” primers here or see our mildly-embarrassing five minutes of television fame here, listen to our recent podcast here or watch the short film we made together with IdeasLab here.

Our lab is part of the Institute of Microbiology and Infection and the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham.  We are also part of the NIHR Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre.

If you’re interested in joining the group, check our ‘Joining’ page or search for PhD vacancies at ‘’.  Finally, our work would not be possible without the support of our sponsors: the Medical Research Council, the BBSRC, the Wellcome Trust, the Lister Foundation and VIN Technology Ltd.
