The team

Please note this page will be undergoing updates in the near future.

Our research and developmental work has been achieved through the hard work of numerous PhD, post-doctoral and graduate researchers. These have been based both in the UK and overseas through collaborations. There is also a large international network of researchers who have contributed to the Cronobacter PubMLST database (Link).

Research has covered primary isolation, identification (phenotyping and genotyping), characterisation, taxonomy, virulence, genetic manipulation and genomics. As well as a prolific amount of research and publications on Cronobacter, newer areas of research have included longitudinal neonatal intestinal microbiome studies, Acinetobacter genomics and bacterial biofilm formation on medical devices.

For more details see Prof Steve Forsythe's CV and the very (!!!) long list of my publications with download links at Publications. You can access stats on the publications through the following sites:
