Dr Ronan Doyle

Research Associate, Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Ronan Doyle studies uses of nucleic acid sequencing in diagnosing and tracking infectious disease. His previous work at UCL has included the association between maternal microbiomes and placental infection, as well as the sequencing the genomes of fastidious bacteria, such as M. tuberculosis and C. trachomatis, directly from clinical samples. His current projects at Great Ormond Street Hospital involve using sequencing to track AMR and the spread of M. abscessus, CRE and VRE. His passion lies in the successful translation of techniques developed within biomedical research into routine clinical practice.
