Biocides are broad spectrum antimicrobial agents used extensively in healthcare as antiseptics and disinfectants. Working with the United Kingdom Health Security Agency, you will employ molecular, genomic, bioinformatic, and directed evolution techniques, in conjunction with models of polymicrobial infection, to answer fundamental questions about the role of biocides in evolution of antimicrobial resistance.
