Research

Research interests

After commencing specialty training in Respiratory Medicine, Phil developed a clinical interest in Cystic Fibrosis and Bronchiectasis. This expanded to a research interest as he undertook a PhD using molecular microbiological techniques to investigate bacteria in the lungs of these patients. This included investigating for cross-infection by a notorious bacteria via sequencing techniques and assessing microbial communities in the context of clinical disease. Phil continues to research these conditions with a focus on infection. In 2020 Phil has had an increased focus on antimicrobial resistance. He has a grant to investigate the resistome in respiratory patients and has been part of the GW4 Crucible Cohort (Interdisciplinary Approaches to Tackling AMR).  Via the GW4 Crucible programme he has a further seed corn grant to look in to a novel antimicrobial approach in cystic fibrosis in collaboration with other early career researchers in Bath, Bristol and Cardiff. Phil  is also currently a Co-investigator on a COVID-19 vaccine trial (Novavax).
