Currently doing a PhD in plant pathology at the UofG with a general interest in how bacteria manipulate their hosts and how we can fight back. Outside my studies I brew my own beer, practice yoga and can normally be found in any gig venue around Glasgow.

    Bacteriocins should be made on-site. Why not “teach” the good bacteria to fight the bad bacteria? Find a trigger to tell the good bacteria in the body that there is an attack. Alternatively, train an army (of good bacteria) outside the body, then send them in to battle.
