Group Leader, Gut viruses & Viromics, Quadram Institute

I am a Group Leader at the Quadram Institute Bioscience in Norwich (UK) where my group investigates bacteriophages, viruses of bacteria. I'm interested in how bacteriophages contribute to a healthy gut microbiome, and how we can exploit them to improve our health and treat diseases.
