Dr Emma Hayhurst

I am interested in the transmission and detection of antibiotic resistance in the environment and the clinic, and in the wider issue of reducing inappropriate prescriptions through improved diagnostics, public engagement and improvements in public health. I work in partnership with the water industry and the NHS. For the past few years I have been working on a translational research project to develop an affordable diagnostic device for urinary tract infections (UTIs).
