Who’s Taking Part: June 2017

The Scientists

Liz Buckingham-Jeffery | PhD Student, University of Warwick

I use maths to try and figure out how many people are going to catch norovirus (a very common illness that causes horrible diarrhoea and vomiting!) this year

Kevin Pollock | Health Protection Scotland

I work in the field of infectious diseases where I attempt to understand why deadly bugs infect us and what we can do to prevent being infected in the first place!

Christl Donnelly Professor, Imperial College London

I study infectious diseases – how they spread and how to stop them

Rebecca Corkill PhD Student, John Innes Centre

Think Jurassic Park science- but less deaths, danger and dinosaurs; instead we change insects so they benefit humans.

Rosie Fok | Derriford Hospital, Plymouth 

I am a Consultant Microbiologist (a doctor who advises other doctors and healthcare workers on how to manage infections and prescribe the right antibiotics)
