Biofilm models: from the ridiculous to the sublime


After graduating with a B.Sc. in microbiology from the University of Liverpool in 1993, Andrew moved to the University of Cambridge to study for a Ph.D. in medical microbial ecology with the Medical Research Council at Addenbrooke's Hospital. For the last twelve years, his research at the University of Manchester has focused on the responses of biofilms to antimicrobial treatments and the interaction of microorganisms colonising the skin, nasopharynx, oral cavity and intestine with the human host in health and disease. He has successfully supervised 16 postgraduate students and published over 70 papers and book chapters.
