Mathematical Modelling of Biofilm Formation on Urinary Catheters

This project aims to achieve a better understanding of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) using a multidisciplinary approach centred on mathematical modelling. Read more

Role of the stringent response to promote biocide induced antibiotic tolerance in Staphylococcus aureus biofilms.

The selection of antibiotic tolerant bacteria is of emerging concern and is thought to contribute to treatment failure. Our preliminary data supports the hypothesis that widely used biocides can promote such tolerance in the major human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus by activation of the stringent response. Read more

The fate of microplastics in aquatic environments

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Hone novel methods to track (real-time) and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments. Read more

Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria: From water source to lung

An exciting collaborative research project between the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and the Department of Global Health and Infection at the University of Sussex, UK. Read more

Coatings of Anammox Bacteria for Nitrogen Removal from Contaminated Water

Nitrogen, in the forms of ammonium and nitrates ions, is a serious problem in the UK and elsewhere in water being discharged into the environment because it can harm aquatic ecology and detrimentally affect human health. Read more

Targeted delivery of antibiotics using proteins that bind to bacterial biofilms

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Antibiotics are becoming less effective because of resistance developed by bacteria. We aim to combat antibiotic resistance by developing better ways to use existing antibiotics. Read more
