Associate Professor Daniel Wilson
Sir Henry Dale Fellow; Robertson Fellow
My research interests centre on the development and application of tools for microbial genomics, in particular population genetics, to understanding human pathogens. I am involved in the Modernising Medical Microbiology, STOP HCV and CRYPTIC consortia, projects with the common aim of using genomics to better understand clinically important microorganisms.
